Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
The secret to making these potatoes extra-flavorful is cooking them in chicken broth. They're mashed until perfectly smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of butter and cream to make a savory side everyone will enjoy.
2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Certified Organic Chicken Broth
6 Yukon gold potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch pieces (about 8 cups)
1/2 cup light cream or half and half
2 tbsp. butter
Heat the broth and potatoes in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Do not drain.
Mash the potato mixture with the cream and butter. Season to taste.
Flavor Variation: For Ultimate Mashed Potatoes, stir 1/2 cup sour cream, 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve some to sprinkle on top), and 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives into the hot mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with the reserved bacon.
Easy Substitution: For Ultra Creamy Sweet Potatoes, substitute 2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 5 1/2 cups) for the potatoes. Makes 5 servings.
Serving Suggestion: These potatoes are delicious served with your favorite Campbell's® Gravy.
