Mashed Potatoes

I am not sure if I am putting this in the right place..so please forgive me if I gooped up. My favorite recipe for mashed potatoes is using whipping cream instead of milk. It is located by the milk at the grocery store. I just thought I would recommend it since holidays are coming up. Using half and half, makes the mashed potatoes so much better. I use butter and salt and pepper with it of course too. I highly recommend it:)

I make my mashed potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese. Very rich, of course, but delicious. Also, it can be prepared ahead and frozen, then pop in the oven for 1/2 hr. before serving. Always a big hit!

I have another recipe for mashed potatoes that can be made ahead too and then baked later. It is really good too. I will post it tomorrow- if I think of it.

My favorite mashed:

Use large russets, cut into 2 inch chunks. Easily scalable.

For each russet use:
1/4 cream
2 TBSP butter
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp white truffle oil.

Boil potatoes until tender, mash.

Melt the cream and butter together, then mix into potatoes, mix in the garlic and the truffle oil.

Potatoes like no other.

I hate don't care for potatoes with cream. Too fatty and heavy. I prefer regular milk .
