Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Yield 6 servings
The secret to making these potatoes extra-flavorful is cooking them in chicken broth. Then they're mashed until perfectly smooth and creamy with just the right amount of butter, cream and pepper.

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Generous dash ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. 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, cream, butter and black pepper. Add additional broth, if needed, until desired consistency.

    Ultimate Mashed Potatoes: Stir 1/2 cup sour cream, 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve some for garnish), and 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives into the hot mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with the reserved bacon.
