If you let your greek yogurt drain in layered coffee filters (think flat bottom drip filters) it makes for a thicker greek yogurt and less liquid in your mashed potatoes. The amount of chicken broth and yogurt is really up to you depending on how thin you want your end result. I like adding homemade roasted garlic to mine. Read More

I like the flavor that the Oikos gives to these mashed potatoes just a little bit of tang. I scaled this down to four servings mashed the potatoes and they were pretty soft so I did not add the full amount of either chicken broth or yogurt. They just would have been too wet. I most likely will start adding yogurt to mashed potatoes in the future as everybody liked the flavor that it adds. Read More
