  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees (225 C.).
  • Wrap potatoes in foil, place on a tray, and cook until soft all the way through, about an hour.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool so you can handle the potatoes.
  • Cut in half, and scoop out insides into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add all ingredients.
  • Using a whisk, blend potatoes until smooth and ingredients evenly distributed, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Salt to taste, and serve.
This recipe is credited to the assistant chef at the White House named Sam.

It's nice that it doesn't have all the traditional sugars or marshmallow.
