Laughing Cow Mashed Potatoes

"I love mashed potatoes and was looking for a way to make them healthier. What I discovered is that those little Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges make an awesome substitute for butter and the taste of the potatoes is wonderful. Recently, my SIL was here and she raved about these potatoes and I had to share my secret with her. I calculated the points for these on the WW website and the points value per serving is 3."

    Great way to do mashed potatoes, with lots of flavor! Very creamy without having milk and butter, and better texture than the skinny ones I make with chicken broth. I used the French Onion flavor, but next time will try the Garlic and Herb. Great with a steak. Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.

    Not the traditional mashed potato recipe....but very yummy! For some reason, all my grocery store had was light flavors. So I cooked garlic with the potatoes to add some flavor. They were a bit dry, so I definitely added the cooking water. They turned out to be a wonderful side dish.....thanks for sharing!

    Adding Laughing Cow Cheese to mashed potatoes really gave them a lovely enhancement. They were extra creamy and I didn't even miss the butter. :) Made for Potluck tag.

    I saw laughing cow cheese for the first time a couple of weeks ago and on impulse bought it (family pack with 16 wedges) and though we are not fans of processed cheese this was very good in the mash potatoe and we thoroughly enjoyed the smooth creamy texture. Thank you LARavenscroft and ElaineAnn for recommending in I Recommend Tag Game.

    These mashed potatoes are very good, being low-fat. We didn't miss the butter in these. Thanks Lori :) Made for Zaar Star Game


    This is how DH always makes his mashed potatoes. He does use milk in place of the potato water. Reviewed for Zaar Stars

    Great creamy mashed potatoes. I did use low fat milk instead of water and I added just a tad of I can't believe its not butter with salt, garlic powder. Yummy!!! i can't tell the difference from my full fat version.
