Almost no-fat mashed potatoes for those upcoming family feasts! Almost no-fat mashed potatoes for those upcoming family feasts!
Number of Servings: 6


    One 3-lb bag of red skin potatoes
    One 32 oz carton/can chicken broth
    6 tbls fat free sour cream
    6 tbls fat free cream

    sea salt
    fresh ground pepper


Step 1
Wash and chop potatoes leaving skins on for extra fiber.

Step 2
Place in pot with chicken broth (no water), add chives, or other chopped herbs and spices then boil potatoes until soft (test by piercing with fork).

Step 3
Drain potatoes (reserve broth) then add to mixing bowl with sour cream and cream cheese. Beat by hand or with electric mixer until desired consistency. If potatoes are too stiff add some of the reserved broth 1-2 teaspoons at a time while whipping until desired consistency is reached.

Season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

Any broth remaining may be used as gravy. The starch from the potatoes actually thickens it.

Will serve 6.

    I'm going to try this, but wanted to comment that on the ingredient list it says fat free cream, and the nutritional break down and directions say fat free cream cheese. I'm assuming it is cream cheese. - 11/14/10
