Home-Style Mashed Potatoes

Yield: Serves 8. Each serving: 1/2 cup.



2 lb baking potatoes, washed, leave peel on
1/4-3/4 cup skim milk
1 Tbsp soft light margarine
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried parsley
black pepper to taste

Cut potatoes into chunks and place in a large pot. Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat to medium and cook until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain the water and place the potatoes back on the stove. Allow the excess water to evaporate. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher then add the rest of the ingredients. Reheat potatoes thoroughly then serve immediately or keep hot until ready to serve. Refrigerate leftovers quickly in shallow container.
