Buttermilk-Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are usually kid-friendly fare, and giving them a nutrition makeover is simple. Start with microwaving russet potatoes.

We stir in a combo of fat-free milk and naturally thick buttermilk, a small amount of butter, and high-flavor Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
