Alfredo Mashed PotatoesPosted: June 24, 2013
In my book it is not possible to cook a potato the wrong way. And mashed potatoes are such a favorite of mine, my hubby calls me the mashed potato queen! While getting our Sunday dinner on the table I decided I wanted to do something different with my MP this time around. What to do? What to do? I thought about cream cheese, but I’ve done that before. How about ranch dressing? No, that isn’t quite it. Ah Ha!! Alfredo sauce!! And thus is the birth of my Alfredo Mashed Potatoes!
4 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 Tbs butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of milk 1 cup prepared Alfredo sauce
Add cubed potatoes to a pot of water and brink to a boil. Continue to boil until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes, depending on the size of potato cube. Once tender, drain and return to pot. Using a hand masher, do a quick mash (I’ve found this is an easy way to initially prepare the potatoes and helps avoid overworking them with the mixer). To potatoes add butter, salt, prepared Alfredo sauce, and milk. using an electric mixer on low, mix all of the ingredients, being careful not to overwork the potatoes or they will be the consistency of wall paper paste. More butter, Alfredo sauce, or milk can be added to taste.
