    These are special, and go well with the pan gravy recipe I am posting. Using Yukon Gold potatoes, you can either leave all the skins on, or, as I do, peel half the potatoes. This recipe is for four. I omit the salt if serving with the pan gravy (the bacon makes the gravy salty enough)


    • 2# Yukon Gold potatoes;
    • 1/2C whipping cream
    • 1/4C extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 tbs kosher salt
    • 1/4 tsp white pepper


    1. I halve the potatoes to reduce cooking time
    2. bring potatoes to boil covered with water
    3. cook until a fork will easily pass through
    4. drain the potatoes, but let steam uncovered for a few minutes
    5. if not serving right away, transfer to an oven-safe container
    6. mash the potatoes
    7. mix in the cream olive oil, salt and pepper
    8. cover and keep warm in 150 degree oven

      This is a simple mashed potato recipe, and not for those avoiding fat, but boy are they yummy! I think using the Yukon gold potatoes is the secret. They tasted more flavorful than other mashed potatoes I've eaten and also were a beautiful shade of gold.
