25 Min

Need a great potato holiday go-along for your main dish? Then these Fast Mashed Potates and Parsnips are the perfect choice. The parsnips add a flavorful earthy taste o these creamy traditional-style mashed potatoes.

What You'll Need

  • 6 large Idaho Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 6 medium-sized parsnips, peeled, and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 medium-sized onions, peeled and cut into 8 wedges
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water; add the potatoes, parsnips, onion, and garlic. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add the sour cream, salt, and pepper and beat with an electric beater for 3 to 4 minutes, or until creamy.


You can make these a day or two before planning to serve them. Then you can just heat 'em in the microwave for a few minutes before mealtime.

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

When you get a craving for fresh baked cookies, you have to do what you have to do. Luckily, here in the Test Kitchen, we can make cookies any time we want. Our go-to are these Oatmeal Cranberry cookies. Can you blame us? These sweet oats and tart cranberries are always a treat when washed down with ice cold milk. We wish you could smell the scent of cinnamon in the Test Kitchen, but making them in your home is just as tasty.
