Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 2½ lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, well cleaned
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup half and half {whole milk works in a pinch}
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 4 oz Mascarpone cheese
  1. Add the potatoes to a large pot and fill with cold water to just over and inch above the potatoes. Stir in the salt. Cover and bring to low boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes or until a fork easily pierces the potatoes.
  2. While the potatoes cook, warm your butter and half and half {separately} over a very low heat. The idea is to get these items just warm and not actually hot.
  3. Drain and peel the potatoes. Using your choice of masher, mash the potatoes in {or into} the cooking pot.
  4. Add the warmed butter and stir. Once the butter is absorbed, add in the half and half and stir gently. Let stand for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Gently stir in the Mascarpone cheese. Transfer to a serving bowl and add any desired garnish.
