Mashed Red Skin Potatoes



Ingredients:
2 1/2 -3 lbs cooked and drained red skin potatoes, skin on*
1 bunch green onion, 1/4 inch dice, green parts only
1/3 cup sour cream**
1 tablespoon butter
salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Mash, mash, mash. Serve as a side dish.


*if the potatoes are very large, you may want to roughly chop them before boiling.
**low fat sour cream is okay to use in this recipe.
My thoughts:
I know this is the simplest recipe ever but there are some of the best mashed potatoes I've had in ages so it works out. We made this to serve along side hot dogs from the grill instead of potato salad (couldn't decide on a good recipe) and the results were so good we were fighting over the leftovers the next day. Very quick, very homey. I like to mash this sort of potatoes especially vigorously because they form a thick, uniform texture with few chunks that is great with the bits of green onion.
