smashed Yukon Gold potatoes and caramelized onions?

vozick Nov 20, 2007 05:41 PM

I nee to make mashed potatoes without any dairy for a lactose intolerant relative. So I thought I would make smashed Yukon Gold potatoes and mix them with some caramelized onions sauteed with olive oil. Can anyone see any problems with this?

    It sounds good. I'd probably add some chicken/turkey broth so it isn't too dry and maybe some Earth Balance (I like EB but there are people who don't). I also add turkey drippings to my mashed potatoes.

      Yukons with garlic (can be simmered for a few minutes with potatoes), and olive oil is a classic. Smashed ones don't need a lot of extra moisture, though you could reserve a bit of the cooking water for this. I leave the skins on. (don't forget the s&p).

        Saunds yummy. Also, there's lactose-free milk available in some areas. But frankly, I like your idea better.

          I make dairy-free mashed for my son using Earth Balance and soy milk. Carmelized onions would be a great additiion.

            She made them, and they were delicious.
