Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes:
- 3 lbs potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 250ml tub mascarpone cheese
- 5 cloves of garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 1/2 cups 10% cream
- 1/4 cup butter
Peel and cut potatoes into small cubes. Leave mascarpone cheese out to soften while potatoes are boiling. Place potatoes into large pot, cover with water, salt and bring to a boil. Once potatoes are soft, drain water. Meanwhile sauté garlic and butter in a small frying pan (try to do this 5 minutes before the potatoes are soft). Mash potatoes, fold in mascarpone cheese and butter/garlic mix. Slowly add cream and stir. Season with pepper (fresh black pepper as used in class), salt and serve. Try to make mashed potatoes as the last dish you make before serving the turkey.
