Ultimate smashed taters

Discussion in 'Recipes and Cooking' started by chili, Oct 29, 2010.

  1. [​IMG]

    3 1/2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth (Regular, Natural Goodness or Certified Organic)
    5 large potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 7 1/2 cups)
    1/2 cup light cream
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
    2 tablespoons butter
    3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve some for garnish)
    Generous dash ground black pepper
    • 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, reserving the broth.
    • Mash the potatoes with 1/4 cup broth, light cream, sour cream, chives, butter, bacon and black pepper. Add the additional broth, if needed, until desired consistency. Garnish with the remaining bacon.
    This was a whim I tried and it is SMASHING GOOD :)
