Perfect Picnic Mashed Potatoes Recipe
- 5 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup half & half
- 2 cups shredded fontina cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Chopped chive for garnish
- Peel the potatoes and cut into 1 inch cubes. Place the potato cubes and minced garlic in a large Swiss Diamond Stockpot, then cover with cold water.
- Add 1 tablespoon salt to the water and bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer for 10-14 minutes, until you can easily cut the potatoes with a butter knife.
- Drain the potatoes and immediately mash until almost completely smooth.
- Place the butter and half & half in a microwave-safe bowl and warm so that the butter melts into the half & half.
- Once the potatoes are mashed, add the butter mixture to the potatoes and mix to incorporate.
- Mix in the cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
