You won't believe you're eating healthy with these tasty potatoes. We made them creamy with buttermilk and then added fabulous flavor with Parmesan cheese and chives.


  • 10 medium potato(es), red (about 2 1/2 lbs)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, warmed
  • 3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, strong-flavored, grated
  • 1/4 cup chives, chopped
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste


  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with an inch of water; bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer and cook until fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to pot.

  • Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well to combine. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.


  • Add the bold flavor of wild mushrooms to these mashed potatoes by soaking 1/4 cup of dried shiitake, porcini or black trumpet mushooms in boiling hot water for 10 minutes. Drain well, chop and stir in with the cheese.
