Broccoli Smashed Potatoes

While my sister visited, she requested honey-lime crockpot chicken, and of course, I obliged.  Thus, I was looking for a good side dish when I came across this recipe from Patrick and Gina Neely.  Perfect -- they are this week's Food Network Challenge Chefs!  And, their potatoes were great!

Broccoli Smashed Potatoes - Adapted from the Neely's
{Print Recipe}

1 lb. potatoes
1 broccoli head, chopped, (~3 C)
1/4 C milk
1/4 C cream
2-4 T butter, as desired
salt and pepper to taste

Wash, peel and cube the potatoes - done by my precious little sister!

Then, boil in salted water until tender.

About 5 minutes before potatoes are done, add in the broccoli.

Drain the water from the broccoli and potatoes.

Return the broccoli and potatoes to the pan.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter.  Then, stir in the milk and cream.

Pour this mixture onto the potatoes and broccoli.

Use a potato masher to mash up the potatoes.

Season with salt and pepper.

  4. I wonder how my kids would react to broccoli in their mashed potatoes......

  5. That looks great and delicious!

  6. What a great way to get your kiddos to eat broccoli! Yum!

  7. This looks great! When I studied abroad in college, the dining hall at our university always made a mix of mashed potatoes/carrots and it was really good. I had never even considered mixing a veggie in before that!

  8. ooo those look amazing! we tried califlower, i might have to try broccoli yet!

  9. My brother used to mix peas in with his mashed potatoes and I thought he totally ruined the potatoes! Broccoli is a different story though. Those potatoes look good.

  10. What a great way to sneak in more vitamins to one of their favorites!

  11. Looks good! Can I smother them in sharp cheddar? It took me a long time to figure out what was in the pot with the potatoes and's the overhead light. Hmmmm....long day :)
