Description

Making mashed potatoes is fun and simple enough for the kids to help. This recipe is easy to make and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1.5 inch cubes
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, heated
  • 2 Tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation
Prep Time: 5min | Cook Time: 20min

  1. Place potatoes in a large heavy pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Off the heat, mash potatoes, adding enough hot broth to make a smooth puree. Stir in sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
