Mashed Potatoes

Especially during the holiday season, mashed potatoes seem to work their way into the menu. These mashed potatoes are one of the favorite recipes of the chef. I must tell you up front that these are not the healthiest mashed potatoes out there – but they sure are good going down.
  Yukon gold potatoes 6 (Peeled)
  Heavy whipping cream 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic 12 Clove (60 gm)
  Butter sticks 1 1⁄2

1. Place a large pot of water on the stove and bring to a boil.
2. Wash, peel and cut your potatoes. First cut in half length-wise, then into chunks. Cutting them into chunks will help to cook the potatoes at a speedier rate. Place into the boiling water (need enough water to cover the potatoes) and add 2 cloves of garlic per potato. You will boil for about 40 minutes – or until you can stab the potato with a knife and the chunk slides right off the knife. Do NOT add salt to the water at this point.
3. Once the potatoes are finished, drain the water and mash them. You can mash them using a Foley Food Mill, a masher or beaters.
4. Bring the mashed potatoes back to the stove top and reheat on medium heat. Add in heavy whipping cream and butter. You want the potatoes to be weeping – have a creamy consistency. This is not an exact science so just taste as you add the butter and cream to get it exactly as you like it.
5. Finally, add your salt. Serve and enjoy!
