Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

4-6 potatoes, skin on, well washed
1 6 ounce container plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter
roasted garlic to taste
onion flakes to taste
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
chopped parsley

In a fairly large pot, bring potatoes to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 45 minutes, or until the potato easily falls when a knife is inserted in the center. Drain and add remaining ingredients. Smash using a potato masher, breaking up the skin and combining the ingredients thoroughly. It’s that simple!
