First we had the Herb Roasted Turkey – and now we’re jumping over to Mashed Potatoes. It’s the right thing to do. Because let’s be really honest with ourselves… it’s all about the potatoes. These Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes are priceless on their own as they are fluffy, laced with cheese and taste like heaven… but imagine them doused with a giant spoonful of the Gravy from the Herb Roasted Turkey!!!! It’s like the most amazing date you’ve ever gone on in your life. Cheese, herbs, potatoes, and more cheese… I mean, what else in life could you possible ask for???? (maybe new episodes of Game of Thrones year round #justsaying)
There are 2 things to keep in mind when you’re whipping these up. One – get a ricer. It’s going to make your life easier, it’s going to make your potatoes perfectly smooth and it’s going to give you a slight arm workout which, in my mind, is much appreciated considering the amount of calories I consume at Thanksgiving dinner.
Two. Go for the gold. Yukon Golds. They are available at every market and they are my favorite potato to use for this recipe because they don’t dry out when boiled and they are a bit creamier which obviously makes for better mashed potatoes. Obvi.
