Smashed potatoes have the skins on and are a little chunkier than standard mashed potatoes.  Caramelized onions will make this familiar side dish a healthy family favorite.


2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 large yellow onion, peeled, quartered, and thinly sliced

2 pounds Side Delights® small red-skin potatoes

3/4 cup no-salt, fat-free chicken broth

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Melt the butter in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the onions, reduce the heat to very low, and cook, stirring often, until the onions are golden and quite soft, about 4 to 5 minutes. If the onions start to brown, reduce the heat even further.

Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large pot, fill with water to a depth of 2 inches, and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce the heat and cook until tender when pierced with a fork, about 25 minutes. Drain in a colander set in the sink.

Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer. Scrape in the contents of the skillet; also add the broth, mustard, salt, and pepper. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until fairly smooth but not too creamy. Serve at once.
