Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp
    unsalted butter
  • 1 large
    yellow onion, peeled, quartered, thinly sliced
  • 2 lb
    small red potatoes, unpeeled
  • 3/4 c
    fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp
    dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp
    salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    black pepper
  • 4 slice
    bacon, cooked and crumbled

How to Make BEST-EVER SMASHED POTATOES

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter and add the onions. Reduce heat to very low, cook, stirring often until the onions are golden and soft, about 45 minutes. Reduce heat even more if the onions start to turn brown.
  2. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pot. Place the potatoes into the boiling water, reduce heat and cook until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl; add the contents of the skillet, and also add the broth, mustard, salt and pepper.
  4. With an electric mixer, beat at medium speed until fairly smooth but not too creamy. Stir in the crumbled bacon and serve immediately.
