  • 10 lbs Red Potatoes
  • 1,5 c Plain Greek Yogurt
  • .25 c Butter
  • .5 tsp Salt


  1. Place potatoes 5 1/2-quart Le Creuset with cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 25-35 minutes, until the potatoes are completely tender (the easiest way to test if they are ready is to pierce with a fork).

  2. Drain.

  3. Using a potato masher, break the potatoes up until they are completely mashed. Add the greek yogurt and butter to the potatoes, using an electric mixer, mix on the lowest speed until creamy. Stir in salt. Serve immediately. If the potatoes are too thick, feel free to add more greek yogurt.

Recipe Notes

  • Don't have a potato masher? You can also use a fork(s), whisk or pastry cutter.
  • If you have leftover potatoes that you don't end up cooking keep them in the fridge covered with water (to prevent browning) until you're ready to cook them.
  • Quarter the potatoes at a minimum, but some larger potatoes you will want to cut into smaller cubes to soften quicker.
  • This recipe is easy to scale, if you don't have as many people to feed it could very well be cut in half.
  • Have more leftovers than you planned? These reheat well in the toaster oven or oven at 350 F for 25-30 minutes covered
