I made mashed potatoes this weekend they were not the prettiest mashed potatoes but they are so delicious. My husband does not eat gravy, no way, no how, never, ever! Who wants to serve plain old mashed potatoes. I have added sun dried tomatoes, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, onions, shredded roasted brussel sprouts, toasted pine nuts, bacon, small diced smoked pork chops, pepperoni, just to name a few things. I thought with the brown butter craze I really needed to try that and it did not disappoint.
Roasted Garlic Brown Butter Sage Mashed Potatoes
3 pounds medium yellow potatoes
2 heads of garlic, roasted
1 stick of butter
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh sage, minced
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper, to taste
Wash and cut in half potatoes place in a large dutch over covering with water an inch over the potatoes, salt water and cook until fork tender. While the potatoes are cooking melt the butter in a small skillet, add sage and medium low heat, allow the butter to brown. Drain potatoes and mash before putting them in your stand kitchen mixer aka KitchenAid. Add cream, roasted garlic, salt and pepper, slowly add the brown butter until incorporated.
