Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Even though these mashed potatoes are lower in fat they are still rich and delicious."


2½ pounds Yukon gold potatoes
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup buttermilk
2 ounces Parmesan, grated
¾ -1 teaspoon kosher salt*
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes. Put potatoes into a 6-quart stockpot and cover with water by 2 inches. Place over medium high heat. Bring water to a boil and allow potatoes to simmer until very tender. Drain water well and place potatoes back in stockpot. Insert the mixing beaters into the Cuisinart® Hand Mixer. Mix the potatoes directly in pot starting on speed 1. Increase speed gradually to speed 4 until potatoes are thoroughly mixed. Add butter, buttermilk, Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.
* The tanginess of the buttermilk plays off the salt. Add salt in ½ teaspoon additions and taste, adjusting to your liking.
Note: If a more subtle tangy flavor is preferred use ½ cup buttermilk and ½ cup whole milk.
