I created this great tasting recipe, more out of necessity than anything else. It ended up pleasing me and especially my husband based on the number of portions he had. I only had about 2 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes, not really enough for dinner, so I decided to make them healthier by adding sweet potatoes to them, and not only did they create this beautiful golden hue, but they tasted amazingly good as well. I added fiber to an otherwise fiber less side dish, and they tasted super. There are about 5 grams per 1 cup serving. Give them a try and see if you don't agree. SIMPLE & EASY

How To Make delightful yu golden potato mash

  • 1
    Wash peel and cube potatoes. If you stay within the suggested guidelineS of only eating a 1/2 cup of potatoes that would be about 111 calories, and only 106 Mg of sodium. Of course if you eat 1 cup or more then you can double those numbers, and the carbs sky rocket to 42 grams for 1 cup. They are very good, but when you are watching what you eat YOU MUST BE MINDFUL OF PORTION SIZE.
