I love mashed potatoes, and the key to a delicious one is a combination of cream, cheese, shallots and green onions. What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than making delicious Creamy Mashed Potatoes.
- 3Lbs of Potatoes
- 8 cups of water
- ½ stick of butter
- ½ cup of heavy whipping cream
- 2/3 cup of onion
- 2/3 cup of shredded cheddar
- 3 big cloves of shallots (if you don’t have shallots, you can replace with Garlic)
- Green Onions
- Seasoning: cayenne pepper, salt and Herbs
Peel the potatoes and cut them in big dices. In a big pot, pour 8 cups of water, add the diced potatoes, and let it cook until the potatoes are soft. Use a fork to see when they are ready. It should take approximately 15-20minutes.
Slice the onion and shallot. In a medium saucepan coated with olive oil, cook both onion and shallot until the onion is transparent.
When the potatoes are ready, drain them. Add ½ stick of butter in the big pot, and add back the potatoes. With a potato masher, mash the potatoes. Add ½ cup of heavy whipping cream. Your mashed potatoes should now become very creamy, smooth and…delicious. Add the shredded cheese. And finally, add the onion/shallot mix. Stir with a spoon. Add seasoning.
It is ready…and yummy!
