These buttermilk mashed potatoes have wonderful flavor and no butter or cream. They are tangy and my entire family loved them more than regular mashed potatoes

Recipe Ingredients for Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

3 pounds potatoes
3 teaspoons kosher salt
3 quarts water
1 1/2 cups low fat buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

  1. Peel and quarter potatoes. (I cut them down the middle and then cut each piece in half again.)

  2. Place a large saucepan on the stove with 3 teaspoons of kosher salt Bring to a boil over high heat. when water is boiling, turn heat down and continue to simmer for 20 minutes or until potato breaks apart when pushed with fork tines.

  3. Drain all water. Mash with a hand-masher. Mash in Buttermilk.

  4. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Note: Potatoes turn black when exposed to air. So be sure to have them sitting in water just after you peel them and before you quarter them.
