Carrot Mashed Potatoes
While I was searching for ideas on how to use potatoes I stumbled across a recipe for Dutch Potatoes on allrecipes.com. I just had to try it especially since it was submitted by Perlene Hoekema, a Lynden resident!
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 tsp. butter
4 c. peeled, cubed potatoes
2 c. sliced carrots
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. salt
snipped chives (I used green onion)
1. In a small skillet saute onion in butter for about 8 minutes, or until golden brown.
2. Meanwhile, place potatoes and carrots in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash. Beat in onion, sour cream and salt. Sprinkle with chives or green onion.
note: it may be helpful to cook the carrots for a few minutes before adding potatoes. You can also add garlic for some extra flavor.
