Baked Red Mashed Potatoes

Sunday night I was baking sweet potatoes for dinner but really had a hankering for mashed potatoes.  I didn't feel like peeling the little red taters and boiling them so off to the Internet I went.  No where could I find a recipe for baked mashed red potatoes so...being the brave soul I am an experiment was called for.

This was as about as easy as it comes, it would probably work better in the winter months when you don't mind having the oven on.  All it takes is scrubbing the potatoes and bake them in a 350 degree oven until they are fork tender.  Place them in a bowl and smush them with a potato masher.  After they are sort of smushed I use the electric mixer along with some milk or yogurt and butter then mix them together until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste and you are finished!

Michael said it tasted like baked potatoes but better and it was far from labor intensive!
