Mashed Potatoes with Rosemary Butter
Who doesn't like mashed potatoes? Make a lot; your family will love these subtly flavored with rosemary.
Serves: 12 to 14
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


3/4 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
5 to 5 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 1/2 cups warm whole milk
1 1/2 cups Grated Parmesan cheese
freshly ground pepper

Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the rosemary and set aside.

Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan. Cover with cold water and add about a tablespoon of salt. Boil over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Add the milk and mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in the Parmesan and rosemary butter and mash until smooth. Use a hand-held electric mixer to mash the potaotes until smooth, if necessary. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
