Whipped Celery Potatoes

  • 2 lbs. Yukon Gold or red potatoes
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine potatoes, water, and 1 teaspoons salt in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 30 to 35 minutes or until tender, and drain potatoes. Cool 5 minutes; peel and place potatoes in a large mixing bowl. 

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet; add celery and onion. Cook, stirring constantly, 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Add to potatoes; beat at low speed with an electric mixer until potatoes are mashed. Add remaining ingredients, and beat at high speed until whipped. Serve immediately.
