Lemon-Rosemary Mashed Potatoes


In a small skillet, heated to medium-high, melt 1 tbsp of butter.

Add in chopped onions and saute for about 3 minutes, or until translucent.

Remove from heat and set to the side.

Chop the potatoes into medium-sized cubes, then place them in a 5-quart pot.

Fill pot with cold water about 2 inches over potatoes.

Add 1 tbsp salt and bring to a boil.

Once water is boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

Remove from heat and drain potatoes in colander. Transfer to large, heat-proof bowl and set to the side.

Add in remaining butter and cream.

Then using a hand-held mixer set at medium speed, blend potatoes for about 2 minutes or until consistency is somewhat lumpy.

Add in sautéed onions, juice of 1 lemon, zest of 2 lemons, rosemary, salt and pepper.

Then continue mixing until potatoes are smooth.

Garnish each serving with fresh rosemary.
