The Best Mashed Potatoes
3–1/2 pounds Harvest Haven potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1/3 cup butter
5-ounce shredded Parmesan cheese (about 1-1/4 cups)
1/4 cup fresh chopped chives
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 heaping tablespoon fresh Harvest Haven minced garlic
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
Bring salted water (about 2 tablespoons of salt – more or less to taste) to a boil in a large saucepan.
Add potatoes and gently boil until tender, but not falling apart (about 12-15 minutes). Drain and return to pot. Cover and cook on low heat for 1-2 minutes to dry potatoes.
Add remaining ingredients and mash with a potato masher until desired consistency is reached. Season with salt and pepper.
