I’ll let Rene take it from here!
It’s November which means the Thanksgiving season is upon us! Mashed potatoes are always my favorite Thanksgiving side dish. Who am I kidding? They are my favorite side dish at any meal. I honestly could eat them every day. I love the traditional white potatoes made with milk and butter but sometimes I like to fancy them up. These potatoes were inspired by one of my favorite appetizers from Henry’s Tavern, a restaurant here in Portland. They make these amazing waffle fries topped with gorgonzola and a yummy cream sauce. I may or may not have eaten a whole plate as my dinner before.
These mashed potatoes are so easy! I like to leave a little of the skin on for added texture but feel free to fully peel the potatoes.
- 3 lb. red potatoes
- 1 tsp. minced garlic
- 1 cup gorgonzola cheese crumbles
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tbsp. whole milk
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. salt
In large pot, bring to boil 8 cups of water and garlic.
Cube potatoes and add to boiling water.
Boil for about 20 minutes, until tender.
Drain potatoes and transfer to a large bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth.
