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

  3. Mash potatoes with 1/4 cup broth, cream, butter and black pepper. Add additional broth, if needed, until desired consistency.
  4. For an interesting twist: Stir 1/2 cup sour cream, 3 slices bacon cooked and crumbled (reserve some for garnish) and 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives into hot mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with remaining bacon.

Made these for thanksgiving dinner and they were a huge hit. I used the sour cream option instead of the regular cream. Everyone raved about the flavour in them. We have a lot of people in our family on a low carb diet and they all had second helpings of the potatoes. I also made these ahead of time and let them sit in the slow cooker to keep warm until dinner was ready...worked out great made for a less hectic kitchen!!!

Doubled the recipe and it didn't come out right. Used sour cream and milk instead of the light cream (like many suggested). We had to add a lot of butter and garlic to salvage it...it ended up being ok.

Best mashed potatoes ever. Used sour cream in place of the light cream, and added a splash of milk.

There's nothing like creamy mashed potatoes! It's comfort food at its best. I never tried it with chicken broth before, I usually just did the traditional milk and butter stuff with maybe some sour cream mixed in to make them even creamier. This was a nice alternative. I used a bit more butter, half and half instead of cream, and added a bit of garlic powder.

I make these almost every Thanksgiving, only using sour cream in place of the heavy cream. Everyone always wants to know how I make them, but I'll never tell. ;)

these were good! great using the broth instead of water, i used 1 8 oz pack of cream cheese instead of the cream, and a lot more butter (but i love butter) but they were creamy and smooth! yum!

This is the best mashed potato recipe on this site that I've made so far! I didn't have light cream so I used a quarter cup of milk plus a few tablespoons of sour cream and a few tablespoons of cream cheese. Definitely good!

Just like it says, they are ultra creamy! Great recipe that I will definitely make again. I did not add any of the "twist" ingredients, just made the recipe as stated. The only thing I did to the potatoes (something my mom taught me when I was young) is once you drain the potatoes, put them back in the pot and back on the burner that you've turned off. Let it sit for about 30 seconds and then give the pot a shake. Do this for a couple of minutes...it will take out the excess moisture in the potatoes so they do not get gummy when you mash them. Works every time!
