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

Step-by-Step

  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.
  2. Add potatoes to a medium size pot, cover with water, cover and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil till tender about 20 minutes or so.
  3. Drain potatoes in a colander, then add back into pot, add salt, pepper and granulated onion powder, & butter OR margarine, and mash with a potato masher or whip till nice and creamy.
  4. Serve with your favorite side dishes & main entree. Enjoy. Quick simple and easy.
