Southern buttermilk mashed potatoes
2 lbs of Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 tablespoon butter
1-1/4 cups non-fat buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepperCooking Instructions:
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, then add enough water to cover by at least 1 inch.
Bring to a simmer and cook over medium heat, covered, until the potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes.
meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
Stir in the buttermilk and heat until just warm (the buttermilk will curdle if you overheat it).
When the potatoes are done, drain them in a colander and return them to the pan.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or electric blender.
Stir in enough of the warm buttermilk mixture to make the potatoes fluffy but not soupy.
Season with salt and pepper.For an extra kick add 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives to your potatoes when you season them with salt and pepper. Easy Southern Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes
