Rustic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

 

 

Red potatoes are mashed with butter, half-and-half and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The chunky texture and bits of red peel give these rustic potatoes a nice touch. I love all things garlic, so in the interest of making sure those around me are also indulging, I typically infuse the cream mixture with a few cloves before mixing it into the potatoes. Garlic, Parmesan and mashed potatoes – doesn’t get much better than this!

Rustic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
Instructions
  1. Wash the potatoes and place in a large pot with 1 Tbsp of kosher salt. Cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Drain in colander.
  2. Heat half-and-half and butter in a small saucepan; do not boil.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to the bowl of an electric stand mixer and affix the paddle attachment. Mix the potatoes on low speed for 5 to 10 seconds, just until the potatoes break up some. Slowly pour in about 3/4 of the hot half-and-half and butter mixture. Mix on lowest setting until just combined. Fold in the remaining cream mixture, grated Parmesan cheese, 2 tsp. salt and freshly ground black pepper. Taste to see if the potatoes need more seasoning. If the potatoes are too thick, add a little more hot butter and half-and-half.
Recipe Notes

Serve the potatoes hot with a pat of butter on top. If you need to hold the potatoes before serving, put the potatoes in a heat-proof bowl and set it over simmering water.

 

Variation:

Add a couple of garlic cloves to the cream and butter; heat until hot. Remove the garlic before adding the cream mixture to the potatoes.
