Thanksgiving Side Dish: White Chocolate Mashed Potatoes
White Chocolate Mashed Potatoes
3 lbs yellow-fleshed potatoes, peeled
1-1/2 ounces white chocolate, chopped (make sure it's pure white chocolate made from cocoa butter and not just a hydrogenated shortening-I use Guittard white chocolate)
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup milk
Cook potatoes in large pot. Cover with cold water and bring to simmer over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until tender (25 minutes). Drain in colander set in sink (completely.. the less starch, the flufflier the potatoes) and return potatoes to pot. Add white chocolate to hot potatoes; stir until white chocolate starts to melt. Stir in salt.
Use electric mixer at medium-low speed to mash potatoes slightly. Pour in milk (or cream) and continue mixing until smooth, about 1 minute. Serve hot.
