    Sesame Mashed Potatoes

    "Fantastic. Instead of half and half I used 1/2 cup of greek yogurt (which I had on hand) and it was awesome. I decreased the butter to a tbsp to save some calories and you don't even miss it because of the creaminess of the greek yogurt and moisture from the sesame oil." -JJ1916ohio
