Our chef, John Dallet, says: “Beef broth gives this recipe extra deep flavor yet still light, fluffy and lump-free."
Mashed Potatoes With Rich Beef Broth And Cheddar Cheese
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 min. Serves: 12
|3 lbs||Baking (russet) potatoes, about 5 each,
peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
|1||Clove of Garlic, crushed|
|2 tsp||Kosher or pink salt|
|3 tbsp||Butter, diced|
|2/3 cup||Western Grassfed Beef Bone Broth|
Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the potatoes in a large pot and just cover with water by a few inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and add garlic clove and generous pinch or two of salt. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Heat the milk and beef bone broth in a separate saucepan over medium-low heat or in the microwave until warmed through.
Drain the potatoes well and return them to the pot over medium-high heat. Cook for 1 minute (to evaporate any excess moisture), turn off heat, and then mash with a potato masher.
Add butter, mashing until well incorporated, add half the heated broth/milk mixture.
Continue to mash adding the remaining broth mixture, season with salt as needed, stirring to incorporate.
Place casserole dish in the oven to heat for 1 minute, remove and scoop mashed potatoes into dish and smooth the top with a spatula.
- Grate cheese on top and place back in the oven until melted, about 8 minutes, serve warm.
