Super Rich Mashed Potatoes
3 lbs Yukon Gold Potatoes Cubed
64 oz Chicken Broth
2 Cubes Butter
1 Small Onion
5 Garlic Cloves
3 oz cream cheese
1/4 cups (or more to suit your consistency) Half and Half
1 Cheese cloth bag
Rough chop the onion and peel 3 cloves. Place them in the cheese cloth bag and drop it all in a pot.
Add chicken broth to pot and bring to a simmer for 15 min.
Cube potatoes, toss into the pot and bring to a boil.
In a small sauce pan, melt butter and then add two smashed garlic cloves. Let that simmer a bit.
When potatoes are soft, remove the cheese cloth bag-then smash the potatoes.
Add cream cheese.
Now here’s where you use your imagination.
Bit by bit add equal parts butter/garlic mixture and half and half to the potatoes. Taste along the way.
When you get to the right flavor profile stop.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.
