2 lbs potatoes
¾ cup nonfat milk
4 tablespoons low-fat cream cheese
4 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
- Peel potatoes; cut into small chunks. Cover with water; bring to a boil and simmer until fork tender; about 20 to 30 minutes.
- Drain and return to pot, reducing heat to low. Add remainder of ingredients and heat through (potatoes mash better when other ingredients are warm).
- Mash with hand mixer or with electric mixer.
Alternatively: Cook potatoes per directions ahead of time, drain, cover and refrigerate in a microwave-safe container. Just before serving, add remainder of ingredients and microwave until hot, about 6 minutes total — stopping to stir once at 3 minutes. Whip with hand mixer or electric mixer.
