Giada's Classic Mashed Potatoes

Sometimes, nothing beats classic mashed potatoes - especially for a holiday dinner. Mine are quite simple, but a few key ingredients make it absolutely delicious. Mascarpone gives an incredibly rich, decadent texture, and chicken broth adds great flavor. A bit of garlic, Parmesan and butter seal the deal in making these an excellent side dish!

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds russet potatoes (peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces (about 5 large))
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut into 1/2-inch pieces, at room temperature)
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and smashed)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup mascarpone (at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a 5-quart saucepan, combine the potatoes, 2 tablespoons butter, the garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain in a colander and remove the garlic cloves. Return the potatoes to the pan and, using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until smooth.
  2. Add the mascarpone, Parmesan, chicken broth, the remaining 4 tablespoons butter, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper to the potatoes. Stir over low heat until smooth and warmed through. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and serve.
