Instructions

  2. Meanwhile, combine potatoes and half and half in a microwavable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and turn back a corner of plastic to allow steam to escape. Microwave until hot, about 1 to 2 minutes; whisk with a fork until smooth and set aside. Microwave vegetables according to package directions; mix vegetables and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt into potatoes.
