To keep the calories down, I used skim milk, low-calorie magarine and fat free cream cheese. The yukon potatoes give this recipe a nice yellow tint. To make the potatoes creamer, I first used a potato masher on the potatoes, added the milk and butter. Next, I used my handheld mixer and blended in the sour cream for a more whipped potato. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into 2" chunks.
  2. Place in large sauce pan and add enough watter to cover by 2 inches.
  3. Add 1 tsp salt and bring to boil.
  4. Reduce heat to medium and cook 20 minutes, until tender.
  5. Drain potatoes and return to pot.
  6. Combine milk and butter in glass measure and microwave on high 1 minute or until butter melts.
  7. Pour into potatoes and mash coarsely.
