Print this Recipe    Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

Here's one that's not only low-fat, but absolutely fabulicious:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups peeled, quartered and thinly sliced yellow onions (1-1/2 pounds)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 pounds unpeeled Idaho potatoes (4-6 medium or 2-3 large potatoes) scrubbed
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1-1/4 cups low-fat milk, heated

In a large skillet, heat oil and butter over high heat until the butter is
melted. Add onions and sugar and cook, stirring often, until the onions are
deeply browned, about 20 minutes. Set aside.
Meanwhile, cook unpeeled, whole potatoes covered with water in a saucepan
Bring to a simmer and cook over medium-low heat, covered until the potatoes
are very tender when pierced with a skewer, 20-30 minutes. Drain and let cool
slightly.

Remove skins with a paring knife and mash as desired. Stir in salt, pepper
and just enough hot milk to make the potatoes fluffy but not soupy. Stir in
the reserved onions and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.

Have a great holiday.
