I love mashed potatoes. I make them in a bunch of different ways. I wanted to make a batch of super smooth and creamy potatoes and I had a container of plain yogurt in the fridge about to go bad so I tossed that in. I was really surprised at how smooth and creamy the potatoes came out! They were a tiny bit tangier than plain mashed potatoes but nothing over the top. These potatoes pair perfectly with brown gravy, amongst other things. Here’s how I make them.

    You had me at mashed potatoes. I have used plain Greek yogurt in my potatoes in place of cream cheese or sour cream.
