There is nothing better, I swear, than a bowl of PERFECTLY mashed potatoes on the plate with gravy, steak or poultry. YUM!
- 4 1/2 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes (best for mashed potatoes), peeled,
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup or more of whipping cream
- 1 1/4 cups of grated parmesan cheese
- Italian parsley – optional
Cut the potatoes in cubes and cook for about 20 minutes in a pot of boiling water. Drain well and put in potato ricer, then put potatoes in bowl of electric mixer, add the cream and cheese and mix well.
Add a pinch of salt and mix in. Taste…..okay, that’s enough! Leave some for the table.
If dining ‘family style’ add a few sprigs of italian parsley.
If plating in the kitchen, use your imagination and make it look really good. After all, we eat with our eyes first, then the stomach.
