"One potato, two potato, three potato, four."
-Child’s rhyme

The refrigerator light goes on...

These potatoes have more butter in them than some of the other "flavored" mashed potato recipes on this site. This is to help enhance the creaminess and the mouthfeel that other flavors like roasted garlic or pesto achieve with less fat.

Buttermilk : Make Your Own

If you are caught without any buttermilk you can make it easily by using 1 cup of skim milk and a tablespoon of any acid. Using white vinegar or lemon juice will work and these add more tartness. Using a tablespoon of cream of tartar will work as well and this will not be quite as acidic.

These do not keep very well.

3 quarts water
1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes
2 tsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup non-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper

Place the water in a large stock pot over high heat.

Quarter the potatoes and add to the stock pot. Cover with water by about an inch. Bring to boil and then reduce heat until the water is simmering.

Cook the potatoes about 15 – 20 minutes until slightly soft in the middle. They should give when squeezed.

Remove from heat and drain water. Add butter, buttermilk, milk and salt. Mash potatoes until creamy. I like to leave some chunks. If you like them smooth be careful because over mashing will result in pasty potatoes. Add ground black pepper to taste.
