Mashed Potatoes

Pimp your mashed potatoes with Wishbone Bone Broth

Since Wishbone Chicken Bone broth has very little fat compared to milk or cream, it makes mashed potatoes less creamy. Actually using Wishbone chicken bone broth in place of milk or cream makes mashed potatoes super flavorful, as they will have a very tasty hint of the savory chicken notes. High-starch, low-moisture potatoes are best for mashing because their cells separate easily, letting them soak up more flavor.

Plan to use about 1 cup of Wishbone chicken bone broth for each 0.5 kg of potatoes. Warm the broth in a microwave or on the stove top, then add it in 1/4-cup increments to thoroughly cooked potatoes. Mash the potatoes with a vegetable masher between each addition of broth. You may end up using less Wishbone chicken bone broth than you would milk or cream, as you don’t want the potatoes to become watery. When mashed to your satisfaction, season with butter, salt and pepper to taste.

If you do want creamy potatoes, use half the amount of Wishbone chicken bone broth and add buttermilk, sour cream or plain yogurt. Or pimp the flavor even more with roasted garlic, crumbled bacon or chopped fresh parsley, cilantro or dill.
