Recipe: Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

It is starting to be grilling season.  I love a good steak and mashed potatoes.  Try these.

· 4 1bs Potatoes (You can use Yukon Gold or russet, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes)
· Butter (a bit)
· Heavy Cream (about a cup and a half, heated)
· Salt and pepper

Start with the potatoes in a pot of cold water so that they cook evenly. Add salt to the water. Make sure that there is just enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, and simmer until soft. (About 15-20 minutes or so.) Make sure not to overcook. Check periodically. Drain the potatoes and then put them back in the pot and into a hot oven for a bit to dry. Make sure to keep an eye on them. Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan. Once the potatoes are dry, pass them through a ricer or mash them with and electric mixer. *If you use and electric mixer, be careful not to over whip the potatoes or they will become elastic and gooey. Add some butter, salt, pepper and cream and whip until combined.
