This recipe features sauteed shallots and red onion. For richer mashed potatoes, without added fat, use buttery-tasting Yukon Gold potatoes to make this side dish.

These potatoes are so good. I used green onion instead of shallot. And dry parsley. I cooked the onion and green onion longer than 5 minutes cause I wanted them to be browned. To give more taste to the potatoes. They had a great texture. Thanks Lainey. Made for Holiday tag
