Mashed Potatoes

Chicken broth adds a savory touch and reduced-fat sour cream adds richness without lots of fat.


  • 3 pounds baking potatoes, (about 8 potatoes), peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, heated
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • salt, to taste


Step 1
Place potatoes in a large heavy pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 2
Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Off the heat, mash potatoes, adding enough hot broth to make a smooth puree. Stir in sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
