Yukon Gold Garlic Mashed Potatoes
I love mashed potatoes. I don't believe that mashed potatoes are fattening, because I can get fiber, vitamins and potassium with this side dish. I am convinced that Yukon Gold potatoes make the BEST mashed potatoes-- even more than russet potatoes.
TECHNIQUE is another secret to great mashed potatoes and my secret weapon is my food mill. You don't HAVE to use a food mill but it's the easiest way to make fool-proof mashed potatoes. Before I started to be more health conscious, I used regular cream cheese and heavy cream-- which tastes sinfully good. But, I've given up heavy cream for a combination of low-fat milk and buttermilk. I do not use fat-free half and half, because of the high fructose corn syrup...you certainly can, if you choose.Submitted by: FOODIEWIFE
