Mashed Potatoes Dunkin Style!


I love mashed potatoes and I don't believe in eating them out of a box, when making them from scratch is so easy. I made these for a group of my husbands co-workers along with crab cakes, and they are still talking about it today. It feeds a crowd.


Ingredients


5 large baking potatoes

1 package of Boursin cheese (you can use the lite version)

1/4 to 1/2 a cup of low fat buttermilk

1/4 cup or so of butter/margarine (I use a lite margarine)

Fresh chives


Method

Peel baking potatoes, cut up and cook till fork tender, drain, and return to pan

Add the package of Boursin and the chives

Start out with 1/4 of cup buttermilk and add more as needed

Salt and pepper to taste

Mash, Mash, Mash *I like to use the manual kind of potato masher but you could whip them with a hand held mixer*

Nice recipe! One question tho.... when does one add the butter/margarine?

Thanks!

Hello Anonymous, you would add the butter at the same time as the margarine!
