A must-have side dish for any meal. These light, fluffy potatoes are lower in fat and are easy to make because there are no potatoes to peel.

Ingredients

1 1/3
cups water
1/3
to 1/ cup fat-free (skim) milk
1
tablespoon margarine or butter
1/2
teaspoon salt
1 1/3
cups Betty Crocker™ Potato Buds™ mashed potatoes

Directions

  • 1 Heat water, milk, margarine and salt to boiling; remove from heat.

Tips  

Shake the salt! Sodium content per serving without salt is 75 milligrams. To reduce fat in the entire dinner, serve these potatoes with grilled boneless skinless chicken breast halves, steamed vegetables and fresh fruit.

Just before serving, stir in 1/4 teaspoon instant minced onion or 1 teaspoon finely chopped onion for each serving.

Need just 2 servings? Use 2/3 cup water, 2 to 3 tablespoons milk, 1 1/2 teaspoons margarine, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 2/3 cup potatoes. To make 6 or 7 servings, use 2 2/3 cups water, 2/3 to 3/4 cup milk, 2 tablespoons margarine, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 2/3 cups potatoes. For any number of servings, use the larger amount of milk if you like extra-creamy mashed potatoes.
