Classic Mashed Potatoes
Ingredients
  • 4  pounds  potatoes such as russet, round white, or yellow, peeled and quartered
  • 1/3  cup  margarine or butter
  • 1/4  cup  dairy sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground white pepper
  •  Milk
Directions

1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven or a large saucepan with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain. Mash with a potato masher, or beat with an electric mixer on low speed. Add margarine or butter, sour cream or yogurt, salt, and white pepper. Gradually beat in enough milk (about 1/2 cup) until potatoes are light and fluffy. Serve immediately. Makes 10 to 12 servings.

Make-Ahead Tip::

2. Spoon mashed potatoes into a buttered 3-quart casserole. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. To reheat, cover and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 hour. Uncover, dot with 1/4 cup margarine or butter, and bake 15 minutes more or until heated through. Before serving, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley.
