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

Directions

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. Serve with the gravy.

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.

Cook's Note

Easy Substitution: For Ultra Creamy Sweet Potatoes, substitute 2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 5 1/2 cups) for the potatoes. Makes 5 servings.
