You can make this two ways, creamy or chunky. I prefer the creamy kind though.
- 1 lb potato
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried herbs
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons butter
- Dice potatoes and place in a medium pot with cold water in it. Add bay leaf.
- Bring potatoes to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
- Drain potatoes, discard bay leaf, and place back in pot. Place over medium high heat and allow to dry out for a few minutes.
- For creamy potatoes, go ahead and place through a food mill, but for chunky potatoes add the rest of the ingredients and mash with a potato masher.
Good mashed potatoes. I'm not too sure that the bay leaf added much flavor, but it was an interesting way to make them. I used Italian seasoning for the herbs and really enjoyed these. Thanks Vchef607 for a nice recipe. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
