This is a great recipe for the Atkins induction phase. The people commenting above are on different diets and avoiding fats. This looks pretty tasty and great for induction.

I've made something very similar and found it to be excellent for induction! You could always cut out the cream and butter and replace with light sour cream or whatever kind of butter substitute you use. In my opionin it's a really great alternative to mashed potatoes!
