Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes (approximately 3 medium potatoes), peeled and sliced
  • 5 tablespoons fat-free half-and-half, heated
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons butter-flavor sprinkles (such as Butter Buds)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Place sliced potatoes in a pan and cover with water. Put lid on pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until potatoes are tender (about 15 minutes). Drain well.

Using an electric mixer on high, mash potatoes until smooth; periodically scraping down sides of pan. Add 3 tablespoons half-and-half and continue beating, periodically scraping down sides of pan. Add sour cream, butter-flavor sprinkles, salt, and pepper; continue mixing until smooth and combined. Thin as needed with remaining 2 tablespoons half-and-half.

Yield: 4 cups. Serving size: 1/2 cup.
