The key to incredible mashed potatoes is adding rich cream. It’s that simple.

  • 4 1/2 Pounds Russet Potatoes (Peeled And Cubed)
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 Shallot (Thinly Sliced)
  • 1 Fresh Thyme Sprig
  • 1 Fresh Rosemary Sprig
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 Teaspoon Peppercorns
  • 8 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (Diced)
  1. Place potatoes in large-size pot. Add water to cover by 3 inches and generously salted water. Bring to boil over a medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a medium-low and simmer 15 minutes until potatoes are tender. Drain well.
  2. In small-size saucepan over a medium-high heat, bring cream, garlic, shallot, thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, and peppercorns to a simmer. Reduce heat to a medium and simmer 10 to 12 minutes until cream is reduced to about 1 cup. Strain cream through fine mesh sieve and keep warm.
  3. In batches, pass potatoes through a ricer into large-size bowl. Add butter and gradually pour in cream. Stir constantly until potatoes are smooth and creamy. Season with kosher salt and pepper.
