Made a modified version last night. I used unpeeled red potatoes, and added chopped onion sauteed with garlic in place of onion powder. Also added a pinch of seasoned salt. It was very good - didn't miss the butter at all. Thanks!
These potatoes were so good & not the least bit low-fat in taste or texture. I really liked the use of onion powder, but did find them in need of more salt to suit our taste preferences & wanted garlic in them as well. So I used 1/2 tsp seasoning salt + 1/2 tsp garlic salt. I also added 2 tbsp of fresh snipped chives in the mix & some on top to garnish. DH loved them too! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
I made these for my family for Easter dinner today. My mom is recovering from a recent heart attack and I was looking for a healthy alternative to the usual butter and cream laden mashed. These were yummy and my family really liked them. I added a little more onion powder than called for and a little white pepper. They turned out very smooth and tasty. I will definitely make again. Thanks!
