Mashed Potatoes ala Paul      j0075488.wmf (16916 bytes)

These are the most decadent and delicious potatoes you have ever tasted.   Paul makes these when we have either cranberry pork roast or chicken-fried steak (or about any other time as well).  Forget your cholesterol for a meal and enjoy!

Your Host,  Brad

I like making these Mashed Potatoes with Yukon Gold, when available.  Also I prefer to leave the skin on for looks and vitamin content.  It's a matter of personal preference, but either way, they're fantastic!

Paul, The Wise Gardener PaulTWG.gif (8413 bytes)

About 7 medium boiling potatoes
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter
1 cup whipping/heavy cream
1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbl freeze-dried chopped chives
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp parsley flakes

Boil potatoes roughly 30-40 minutes until soft when fork is inserted.  Drain potatoes and return to pot.  Whip potatoes without any liquid ingredients (very important) to assure a dry consistency.  Add butter and cream; whip well.  Add additional cream or milk until you have the desired consistency.  Add remaining ingredients and beat until well blended.  Dollop with additional butter and garnish with additional chives, if desired.

You will have potatoes that are clouds from heaven above!  Enjoy!  Paul
