Ingredients

  • Ingredients:
  • 5 red potatoes (medium size)
  • 5 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 and ½ cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 and ½ teaspoons truffle salt
  • 1 and ½ tablespoon truffle oil

Instructions

  • Directions:
  • Clean your red potatoes well. I like to use a my kitchen cleaning brush that is only designated for scrubbing/cleaning my foods.
    Potatoes having been peeled and cleaned from bruised areas on the skin, then diced
  • Next, remove all of your bruised areas and spuds from your potatoes (I use a peeler for this task in order to make it easier for myself, and to prevent cutting off too much of the potato).
  • Then, cut the potatoes in quarters (this helps to decrease my cooking time when boiling the potatoes).
  • Boil your potatoes in a large pot of boiling water for 25 to 30 minutes (or until the potatoes are tender).
  • Once your potatoes are cooked, remove from heat, and start working on your seasonings for the potatoes.
  • In a medium sauce pan, add your add your butter. Melt the butter on medium heat. Then, add your garlic to the melted butter and cook the garlic for about one minute.
  • Then add your milk, heavy cream to the garlic butter mixture. Just cook for about one minute. Now drain the water from your cooked potatoes.
  • After draining the water from your cooked potatoes, add your sauce mixture, truffle salt, pepper, and truffle oil to the potatoes.
  • Then, mash the potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency.
  • And wallah! You now have mashed potatoes with a kick!

Notes

  • After you clean the red potatoes, place them in water to prevent the potatoes from browning as you dice them.
  • If you love truffles flavor, you can add truffled butter to these potatoes as well.
