Toasted Onion Mashed Potatoes5 medium (about 10 cups) potatoes, cut into eighths
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes Butter
3 cups coarsely chopped onions

  • Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet until sizzling; add onions. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are brown (8 to 10 minutes). Set aside.
  • Place cooked hot potatoes in large mixer bowl. Mash slightly with fork. Beat at medium speed, adding cold butter 1 tablespoon at a time, until mixed (30 to 60 seconds). Continue beating, gradually adding browned onions and all remaining ingredients until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Add salt and pepper to taste. DO NOT OVERBEAT. Serve immediately.
