Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes will make you want to melt.
8 large russet potatoes peeled & chopped into larger chunks
1 large container of Mascarpone cheese
1 cup half & half
1/2 cup milk
2 sticks of unsalted butter
salt & pepper to taste
Fill a large pot with the chopped potatoes, cold water and a good amount of sea salt. Bring to a boil & cook the potatoes until they are fork tender. In a separate pot warm the milk as well as the half & half and 1 stick of butter.
When the potatoes are done drain well and put back into the pot with the warm milk & butter mixture. Smash with a potato masher to get the potatoes going and add in a bit of salt & pepper after tasting a potato for seasoning. Add in the mascarpone cheese and using a hand mixer blend together on low slowly adding the last stick of butter a few Tbs at a time until everything is mixed well & creamy, do not over mix.
Keep warm in a double boiler until ready to serve & add a bit more milk if they seem thick and need a bit more moisture. These potatoes are absolutely delicious, but please feel free to share a link to your favorite mashed potato recipe!
