Potato Smash Up
You can also leave the skin on the russet potatoes for a different texture in this dish. Both russet and new potatoes taste nice with the skin on. Sweet potato skin, however, does not usually taste good in recipes.
INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 6 cups
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 russet potatoes
- 1½ cups butternut squash
- ¼ cup butter or trans fat–free margarine
- ½ to 1 cup whole milk (dairy or soy)
Peel potatoes and squash and cube them into pieces of about the same size. Usually 1–2″ cubes work the best.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Place potatoes and squash in boiling water and boil for about 20 minutes.
Drain potatoes and squash and place in mixing bowl.
Add butter and smash with a potato masher or hand mixer.
Add milk to reach desired texture.
