Aligot – mashed potatoes, Auvergne style — 12 Comments

  1. We enjoyed this much when we visited the Auvergne. These potatoes are absolutely addictive. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Maybe, just maybe, I will try it in Florida. It will have to be just for the two of us, because I doubt anyone I know would enjoy it as much. Susan

  2. I have had this dish before. I always just called it “French mashed potatoes” and like “French scrambled eggs” when it is done right it is a revelation. GREG

  3. I love garlic anything so I will surely love this dish. I guess it would go great with a roast…

  4. I don’t need any convincing that this is good–the simple ingredients combined like this make your Aligot a winner in my book. Will have to give this a try.

  5. Susan, how could anyone not like this!?!?
    Ina, exactly what’s not to love?
    Joanne, not pretty – but good!
    Greg, that’s it. It has to be done right or it’s just wallpaper paste.
    Curt, it is.
    My Italian… It would – doesn’t need or want gravy, tho.
    manningroad, very sinful.
    Zoomie, and easy – don’t forget the easy bit,
    Jean, I’m tempted to drive to the Auvergne just to taste test…

  6. I only had Aligot potatoes one time and that was at Michel Bras restaurant in Laguiole in the Auvergne and they were sublime. I have been dreaming about them ever since. Thanks for the recipe.
