buttermilk ranch mashed potatoes

>> Wednesday, June 8, 2011

most people know about my obsession with ranch. i took my addiction to a whole new level when i combined this love with my other great love, potatoes, to make these buttermilk mashies.

the result? a garlicky-herbed concoction that has me contemplating whether i should go to ranch-rehab. my grandfather is on a no-carbs diet and he went back for thirds. that there says it all. hopefully the ranch clinic has room for two.

10 red potatoes (skin on), cut into 1-inch cubes
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon hidden valley ranch salad dressing & seasoning mix
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1/2 cup light sour cream
salt and pepper

place the potatoes in a large saucepan, add enough water to cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes - cooking time will depend on what size you cut the potatoes. use fork method to determine when they're ready.

once potatoes are cooked, drain in colander and return to pot. using a masher, mash until potatoes reach desired consistency - some like 'em creamy, some like 'em chunky. stir in buttermilk, ranch, chives, and sour cream. season with salt and pepper. garnish with more chives and serve hot.
