Truffled Potato Mash

A full flavored mashed potato that has all the characteristics of a more traditional recipe but with enough flavor difference that your guests will be saying ‘I can’t put my finger on it, but something makes this the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had.’

Ingredients:
  • 3 lbs Redskin Potatoes
  • 1 ½ Cups Heavy Cream
  • 6 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Truffle Oil (buy at Amazon)
Directions:
  1. Cut potatoes into 1-2” cubes
  2. Place potatoes into pot and cover completely with water
  3. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until fork tender (about 25 minutes)
  4. Drain water from potatoes and return to low heat for 2-3 minutes to dry up excess water
  5. Put the cream and butter in a small saucepan and place over medium heat until butter is melted
  6. Using a masher and fork, mash the potatoes in their pot
  7. Add garlic, salt, pepper, and the cream/butter to the potatoes and stir until mixed
  8. Stir in the truffle oil and serve
Notes:

Truffle oil can be very expensive and you don’t always get what you pay for. After a lot of research and testing, La Tourangelle Infused White Truffle Oil is an inexpensive solution that has all the flavor of it’s more expensive counterparts.
