Decadent Mashed Potatoes

Anything that tastes good is likely to contain a fair amount of butter and cream, and mashed potatoes are no exception.

Mashed Potato ingredients

  • 3 pounds russet potatoes
  • 1/2 pounds unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream (or half and half or milk)
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Mashed Potato Process

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1 inch chunks. Place in a heavy pot and cover with cold water. Add 1 tbsp kosher salt.
  2. Place over medium high heat and bring to a simmer. Boil the potatoes for 20-30 minutes or until very tender when pierced with a knife.
  3. Drain the potatoes well and allow them to sit in the colander until they begin to turn white on the edges. Spread the potatoes on a cookie sheet and place in oven at 350 for 5-7 minutes or until very dry.
  4. Run the potatoes through a food mill or potato ricer.
  5. Scald the cream and butter together in a small sauce pan.
  6. Add the cream and butter to the potatoes and stir gently until the desired consistency is reached.
  7. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
