Rich Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Nothing better than fresh home cooked Rich Mashed Potatoes for dinner, not boxed here.
You're going to be glad you make these instead of instant.
2 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes*
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup half and half
Garnish: pats of butter
Bring potatoes and cold water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch oven; boil 25 minutes or until tender. Drain; peel, if desired.
Beat potatoes at low speed with an electric mixer just until mashed. Add 1/4 cup butter, salt, and pepper, beating until butter is melted. Gradually add half and half, beating just until smooth. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
*Red or russet potatoes may be substituted.
Goes great with paprika chicken with creamy chicken
