Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

I made a pork tenderloin for dinner recently and paired it with these buttermilk mashed potatoes. I loved how tangy and creamy the buttermilk made these potatoes. I may never go back to regular mashed potatoes–they were that good!

How to Make Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Peel and cut the potatoes. Place them, along with a sprinkling of salt, into a large saucepan and add enough water to cover the potatoes by 1 inch. Bring the water to a boil over high heat then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15-18 minutes. Drain the potatoes.

Place the butter into the buttermilk and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Pour the milk mixture onto the potatoes then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Mash the potatoes using a hand masher until creamy and smooth. Place into a serving bowl and serve immediately.  Enjoy.

    I LOVE mashed potatoes. I’ve never made them with buttermilk…they look and sound delicious! The next time I make mashed potatoes I will try your recipe. Thanks, Pam!

  3. As a long time fan, I think buttermilk makes about everything better.

  4. Just what I needed – a super easy recipe to whip up on Thanksgiving 🙂

  5. Just in time for Thanksgiving! I may try this for my hungry hordes.

  6. I use buttermilk in a lot of my baking, but I have never tried it in mashed potatoes. If you are interested in learning how to save $ by stretching your buttermilk, I have a post about it on my blog. I usually use cream cheese in my mashed potatoes, but I think I will give buttermilk a try for the tang. Thanks for the suggestion and the recipe. Pam!

  8. I’m not sure that my future MIL will let me take over mashed potato duty this year…but obviously I’ll just have to make them after the holiday!
