3 pounds red skin potatoes, cut into 2-inch dice
1 1/2 cups light cream
6 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, minced (1 tablespoon)
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons truffle oil
Total Time:45 min
Yield:6 to 8 servings
Put the potatoes into a large saucepan and cover with water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Cook until fork tender, about 25 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return to a low heat for 2 to 3 minutes to dry up any excess water.
Put the cream and butter into a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Warm until the butter has melted into the cream.
Using a masher, mash the potatoes in the saucepan. Add the garlic, cream, butter, salt and pepper and mix well using a large spoon. Stir in the truffle oil and serve.
