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.
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.
