  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground

    to taste
  • chives, fresh

    MAKE-AHEAD:Cover and refrigerate puree. To reheat, spread puree into a 13" x 9" gratin dish; smooth top. Bake in 400°F oven for 40 minutes, until puree is hot. (Or warm mashed mixture in a medium saucepan over low heat or in the microwave.)

  • 2

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until very tender. Let cool slightly.

    Cut in half, scoop out pulp into large bowl, and discard peel. Add sugar substitute, oil, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes, slowly adding chicken broth to reach desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

    Serve warm, garnished with snipped chives.

Tip:Don’t feel like mashing? You can whip these in a food processor, but we think mashing is part of the fun. Besides, think of the calories you’ll burn.
