Updated Oct 29, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes, cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 package (4 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Place potatoes in 3-quart saucepan; add enough water (salted if desired) to cover. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Shake potatoes in saucepan over low heat to dry.
  • 2
    Add butter, buttermilk, cheese, salt and pepper to potatoes. Lightly mash with fork or back of spoon, keeping some larger pieces of potato.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you make the potatoes ahead of time, keep them warm by setting the saucepan over a double boiler or larger pan of simmering water, or place the potatoes in a slow cooker on low heat setting for 2 to 3 hours.
  • tip 2
    You can easily double this recipe to feed a larger group. Just be certain you have a large Dutch oven to allow for boiling 3 pounds of potatoes.
  • tip 3
    Sprinkle toasted chopped walnuts or chopped fresh chives over smashed potatoes before serving. See page 45 for toasting directions.
