Baked Potato Mashed Potatoes

Recipe by DRiENNE

This is a recipe for french onion mashed potatoes, in which I, again, added my own twist. The trick to this is to keep everything hot throughout the entire process.

Best homemade mashed potatoes we've had in a long time-texture was superb and carmelized onions were a nice addition!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the potatoes & cut them into halves or quarters, depending on size.
  2. Put in a large pot of water with a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cook approximately 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  3. In small pan, heat the milk & 4 tablespoons of the butter. Cook until melted & warm.
  4. In separate pan, sauté the onions in remaining 2 tablespoons of butter until caramelized to a golden brown. Add the sherry to the pan & sauté another 2 minutes until liquid evaporates.
  5. Drain potatoes. Add the milk/butter mixture & start mashing. Season with salt & pepper, then add onions.
  6. Fold in the cheese.
  7. Remove from the heat. I recommend dishing up single servings & adding the remaining ingredients to those. You may also exclude the last 3 ingredients and simply top with gravy.
