How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water to 2 inches above potatoes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender. Drain. Return potatoes to pan. Mash potatoes with a potato masher until coarsely mashed (not smooth).

Step 2

Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion; cook 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and white pepper.

Step 3

Heat milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted. Add onion mixture, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and milk mixture to mashed potatoes, stirring to combine.
