"The secret to making these potatoes extra-flavorful is cooking them in chicken broth. They're mashed until perfectly smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of butter and cream to make a savory side everyone will enjoy."

  1. Heat the broth and potatoes in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.

  3. Mash the potatoes with the reserved broth, the cream and butter. Season to taste.


  • Recipe Tips:
  • Flavor Variation: For Ultimate Mashed Potatoes, stir 1/2 cup sour cream, 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve some to sprinkle on top), and 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives into the hot mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with the reserved bacon.
  • Easy Substitution: For Ultra Creamy Sweet Potatoes, substitute 2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 5 1/2 cups) for the potatoes. Makes 5 servings.
  • Serving Suggestion: These potatoes are delicious served with your favorite Campbell's(R) Gravy.
