The holiday season is upon us and that means the return of all of our favorite holiday foods, like mashed potatoes. Recently I was thinking about some different ways I could bring new life to my mashed potatoes. Russ is just not a fan of simple, plain potatoes and I can't say that I blame him. After some thinking I came up with what I thought was the perfect plan and headed to the store in search of a few ingredients.

I went to my local Wal-mart, I always seem to find exactly what I am looking for there and this trip was no different. I grabbed a container of Chobani® Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt and a few other ingredients before heading back home. 

I knew Chobani® was exactly what I was looking for. It is a great high protein, low fat option and an excellent substitute for sour cream, mayonnaise or oils making a healthier version of your favorite recipes. I am always looking for ways to sneak more protein into our diet. Chobani® plain has 44% of the daily value of protein and is made with only natural ingredients. Replacing other ingredients with Chobani® is a simple way that I can make a healthier choice for our family.

What I found was the perfect ingredient for this Twice Baked Potato Casserole
