Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes have a little less fat than the typical mashed potatoes that I make which are laden with butter and cream. The buttermilk adds all the flavor you need.

Tips for making Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

  • I prefer to use Yukon Gold potatoes for mashed potatoes, but Russet potatoes work fine. I find the Yukon Gold to be just a little creamier.
  • To get mashed potatoes with the perfect texture, use a potato ricer. If you don’t have one, you can use a potato masher or even an electric mixer. Just be sure not to overbeat them with an electric mixer or they will get gluey.
  • You can use either full fat or low fat buttermilk.
  • Don’t heat the buttermilk or it will curdle. Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan, but just barely warm the buttermilk in the microwave or add it in at room temperature.
