Healthy Mashed Potatoes

Healthy Mashed Potatoes created by puppitypup

This is a diet version of my recipe #201988, but you won't notice any flavor missing. Hubby, who has always insisted on adding butter to his mashed potatoes, doesn't feel the need to do so with these :)

ingredients

directions

  • Wash potatoes and cut off any eyes. Do not peel them. Cut them in quarters and place in good sized pot. Fill with enough water to cover potatoes and add salt.
  • Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 - 25 minutes or until tender.
  • Drain water and smash the potatoes in the pot with a potato masher.
  • Add cream cheese and half the milk and continue to smash with masher. Add egg too if desired (it adds to both the fluffy texture and a nice color).
  • Add remaining milk as needed and most of the cheddar cheese. (You might need more milk, depending on your potatoes).
  • Add pepper to taste and garnish with remaining cheddar cheese.

    I made as stated except I added some chopped green onions. This was enjoyed by all. Thanks for a healthy way to make mashed potatoes. Yes, I said healthy, it is a misconception that potatoes are bad for you. They aren't, however, the toppings and ways we make potatoes are. This was a great way to make them healthy and fit into our diet plan.

    No potato is healthy, and these were really lacking in flavor. I didn't like the taste of the cream cheese, so I might go with low fat instead of fat free if I ever make them again. Instead of the cheese I would add carmelized onions and garlic for more flavor.
