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!


Ingredients:
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.

  1. Cool! I am definitely going to give that a try! Thanks Laura! (could I mash the potatoes and carrots with my kitchen aid mixer?)

  2. I'm pretty sure that would work great. Just don't over mash like I did with something the other day in the blender. The potatoes turned to goo (not yummy) but Aiden didn't seem to mind it as it was his baby food.
