Greek yogurt mashed potatoes - delicious side dish for grilled meats. Gluten free recipe.
Deliciously creamy Greek yogurt mashed potatoes is my new favorite, healthier recipe for mashed potatoes! No milk or half-and-half are used, just Greek yogurt, some butter, and water from boiling the potatoes. A smaller amount of butter is used for these mashed potatoes than usual, since we are using Greek yogurt to add creaminess. Greek yogurt adds a nice "tang" to the potatoes, and chopped green onions as garnish on top are perfect!
I love to serve these Greek mashed potatoes with grilled meats along with Oven-Roasted Asparagus with Bacon, Garlic, and Asiago cheese , or Garlic and Bacon Green Beans, or Asiago Roasted Broccoli.
This recipe is gluten free, and will make a nice side dish to just about anything!
