Roasted Garlic and Sun Dried Tomato Mashed Potatoes

  My husband does not like gravy doesn't matter what type of gravy it is he will not touch it and frankly I don't need it although I love gravy.  When I make mashed potatoes I will add goodies to them.  This time I went with an Italian inspiration adding oregano, parmesan cheese, garlic and sun dried tomatoes. They came out fantastic and I didn't even miss the gravy.


Roasted Garlic and Sun Dried Tomato Mashed Potatoes

3 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
2 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt (divided)
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
1 pint whipping cream
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 large bulb of roasted garlic
6 sun dried tomatoes packed in oil (I used DeLallo)

Peel and dice potatoes making sure the potatoes are around the same size.  Place in a large saucepan add 2 tablespoons of salt and cover with water.  Bring to a boil over a medium high heat and cook until potatoes break apart easily with a fork.  Drain and place back into saucepan.  Heat over low cream, butter, oregano, salt and pepper until heated through (do not bring to a boil).  Pour cream mixture a little at a time into the potatoes, using a hand mixture to incorporate cream, alternate until all the cream  is mixed in.  Chop garlic and add to potatoes, pat dry the sun dried tomatoes with a paper towel, chop and add to potatoes.  Mix thoroughly. 

Until Next Time,
Pam
