If you’re looking for more refined dishes for your holiday meal, our Truffle Whipped Potatoes are sure to impress! Yukon gold potatoes make them light and fluffy, but the real star is the truffle oil. Truffles have a very strong flavor and aroma, so a little goes a long way to give these potatoes a rich, earthy flavor. They are otherwise very simply seasoned with salt and thyme. We’ve also kept them skinny by using Greek yogurt and skim milk rather than butter and cream.
These whipped potatoes will be a perfect accompaniment to your elegant holiday menu. They’re rich in flavor, but not in calories or fat, so you can enjoy them guilt-free!
