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), unpeeled and 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. Drain the potatoes well in a colander, reserving the broth.
Mash the potatoes with the reserved broth, 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.
