Shadow Mountain Mashed Potatoes

This is a lightened version of a recipe for Mountain Mash Potatoes I found in a magazine. Original recipe used a 1/2 cup of butter and cream. I was doing Weight Watchers at the time so it wasn't practical to make, however, I liked the idea of red potatoes with green onions. This is wonderful with roast beef and gravy. 2 Points per serving.

These were delicious!! I will put this on my favorites. I cooked the green onions on the stove over low heat to soften the onions a little bit. Then, I stuck them in the potatoes. Really good!!

Great potatoes. I love recipes where you don't have to peel potatoes, lol. Nice flavor and loved the green onions in them. Thanks, Tarynne.

These were wonderful. I had never mashed red potatoes before, and sure will from now on, since russets are not good for diabetics, and waxy potatoes are better! Thanks for posting!
