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.


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


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?

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

Smoked Chile Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

I remember making this a few years ago, I though I had blogged about it but I guess not! I decided to add it to our Thanksgiving meal...
