DIRECTIONS

  • Pierce washed potatoes, wrap in foil, place on baking tray in oven at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until very tender.
  • When cooled just enough to handle, peel off the skin and cut into chunks that fit your food processor or extremely powerful blender.
  • Melt the butter and the spices together in the microwave.
  • Blend the potato with the melted spiced butter and the cream following the instructions of your processor or blender, serve when blended throughout.
  • *I used an extremely high powered blender (a vita mix) and had to stop and stir while pureeing multiple times so as to not burn out the motor. If it is too thick, add some more cream or milk to get it to the consistency you want it. Feel free to add more smoked paprika if you enjoy the flavor as much as I do!
