    When it comes to comfort foods, few can beat that perennial American favorite, mashed potatoes. But it’s easy to put a more healthful spin on the old spud by adding colorful carrots to the mix. Found on Americasheartland website

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Boil the potatoes and carrots together for about 15 minutes,(Don’t over-boil them because the consistency becomes too pasty.
    2. 2
      You can leave the potato peels on if you like but we think this works better with red potatoes than with russets.
    3. 3
      Drain the potatoes. Put into a large ceramic or glass bowl. Add the sautéed onion, warm milk, unsalted butter, cream cheese, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Mash with a fork, electric mixer or hand blender, or use one of those old-fashioned potato mashers (also called a “ricer”).
    4. 4
      In our house we go easy on the salt and heavier on the carrots, adding a couple more to the mix. This recipe is good with any kind of potato, but we prefer red-skinned and leave the peels on.
    5. 5
      Tip: In order to blend the flavors together more thoroughly, put the bowl (make sure it’s oven-safe) into a 300-degree oven for ten to fifteen minutes.

      Great side dish! This works with pretty much any meat entree. I doubled the recipe and used parsley and tarragon. Not the same old mashed potatoes, that's for sure. We'll enjoy these again; thanx for sharing!
