Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes

This updated version of the mashed potato was exactly what our Christmas menu needed!

Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes



Ingredients:

4 1/2 pounds of russet potatoes, peeled and halved lengthwise (*I substituted with a package of frozen Ore Ida mashed potatoes and prepared according to package directions.)

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese at room temperature (*Mascarpone can be found in the deli section)

1 egg yolk

3/4 cup milk

salt and  black pepper to taste

1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

1 cup butter, cut into chunks

Directions:

1.  Place potato halves into a large pot of salted water, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook until very tender, about 15 minutes.  A knife should pierce the middle of a potato half easily.  Transfer potatoes to a colander and drain thoroughly, about 5 minutes.

2.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F  (220 degrees C)

3.  Whisk mascarpone cheese in a mixing bowl until smooth.  Stir egg yolk and milk into mascarpone cheese, whisking until smooth; season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.

4.  Transfer potatoes to a separate large mixing bowl, add butter chunks to potatoes, and season with salt and black pepper.  Mash butter into potatoes with a potato  masher until fluffy; a few lumps are okay.  Whisk mascarpone mixture into mashed potatoes.

5.  Spread the mashed potatoes into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

6.  Bake in a preheated oven until potatoes are heated through and top is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
