4 Russett Potatoes rinsed and peeled
2 tbsp. Light Sour Cream
1/2 cup of Skim Milk
3 tbsp. Light Margarine from tub
salt to taste
garlic powder optional
Once potatoes have reached desired firmness, drain potatoes into food strainer and return potaoes to the pot. Leave them on the burner you cooked them in-it will help dry up any excess water.
Take a wire whisk or hand potato masher and give the potatoes a quick mash-to break them up.
In a separate small saucepan, pour in milk, sour cream and butter. Heat just until warmed and butter begins to melt.
Pour the contents of the saucepan into the potato pot a little at a time and use an electric hand mixer to beat everything together. Keep beating in the butter mixture until desired consitency. If desired, beat in a dash of salt and/or garlic powder. You can always add a little more milk to make it fluffier. Enjoy!
