A CozyBogie Thanksgiving: Creamy Mashed Potatoes
November 25, 2011 § 1 Comment
Potatoes to fight over, literally.
Potatoes are one of my favorite things. These mashed potatoes are so delicious, they’ll melt in your mouth and soon you’ll find yourself wondering how you ate an entire bowl.
Creamy Mashed Potatoes
- 3 1/2 pounds white potatoes, or russet
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 cup cream
- 1 cup chicken stock
Peel and dice potatoes, making sure all are relatively the same size. Place in a large saucepan, add the salt, and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to maintain a rolling boil. Cook until potatoes fall apart when poked with a fork.
Heat the cream and the chicken stock in a medium saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Remove from heat and set aside.
Remove the potatoes from the heat and drain off the water. Mash and add the cream mixture and butter; stir to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes so that mixture thickens and then serve. Taste, and if you need more salt, add some but it shouldn’t be necessary. 🙂
