Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes

I take a number of cooking magazines.  My husband was looking through my new Cooking Light magazine and said " I want this whole plate!" It was recipes for grilled pork chops and these Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes and broccoli with lemon zest.  I made them tonight and the pork chops were OK, but the potatoes were AMAZING!  Wow - the flavor was SO good.  Caramelized onions have such a totally different flavor than regular onions.  I highly recommend this as a wonderful and refreshingly different side dish.

Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes
From Cooking Light Magazine

2 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 c chopped onion
1 1/2 lbs chopped peeled baking potatoes
1/2 c fat-free buttermilk (I could only find low-fat)
2 TBSP butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onion and cook over medium-high heat, saute 15  minutes or until golden. 

Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until tender.  Drain.

Into the potatoes, add the buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper.  Mash with a potato masher.  Stir in the caramelized onion.  Yield: 4 servings.
