Mash'd Taters
Makes: 5 Servings

This is a very quick and easy side dish. This three-step dish can be ready in minutes.


4 1/2 cups water
4 1/2 teaspoons light buttery spread
4 1/2 cups dehydrated potatoes
1/4 cup low-fat milk
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder (optional)


  1. Over medium to high heat, combine water and light buttery spread in a medium-size pot, and bring it to a boil.
  2. Turn off heat; add potatoes and mix well.
  3. Add milk to potatoes and mix well. If using garlic powder, add that too.


Tip: Change the recipe by adding fresh onion, green pepper, blended American and skim cheese, or substitute chicken broth for a rich flavor with less fat. Remember that adding chicken broth will increase the sodium.
