A good quick recipe for hearty mashed potatoes.  I added some butter to boost the flavor.  I subbed the Yukon Gold with Russet and cut out half of the skin to make up for the change in skin texture.  Changes in green.

1 1/4 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (about 4 medium), left unpeeled (4 medium Russet potatoes, skin half peeled)

1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth, warmed

1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

1 1/2 Tbs. chopped fresh chives

Salt and pepper to taste

2 Tbs. butter

 

1.  Place the potatoes in a steamer basket fitted over a large pot of boiling water.  Cover and steam until the potatoes are knife-tender, 12 to 15 minutes.  Hmm I have never thought to steaming potatoes!  Unfortunately, I did not try it to get a review.  I covered potatoes with water and then boiled and cooked potatoes until knifer-tender.

2.  Drain the potatoes and return them to their pot.  Add the warm broth and coarsely mash.  Stir in the sour cream, butter and chives, season with salt and pepper.
