Mashed Potatoes with Savory Thyme Granola
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  regular rolled oats
  • 1/2  cup  puffed rice cereal
  • 1/4  cup  pumpkin seeds (pepitas) or sunflower kernels
  • 2  tablespoons  grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1  tablespoon  fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1  egg white
  • 2  tablespoons  canola oil
  • 1  teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2  pounds  Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, cut up
  • 2/3  cup  whipping cream
  •  Salt
  •  Freshly ground black pepper
Directions

1. For granola, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper; set aside.

2. In a large bowl stir together oats, rice cereal, pumpkin seeds, cheese, thyme, kosher salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. In a small bowl combine egg white, oil, and Worcestershire sauce. Drizzle egg white mixture over oat mixture; toss gently to coat. Spread mixture in the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Cool on a wire rack.

3. Meanwhile, in a TK-size Dutch oven cook potatoes, covered, in enough boiling lightly salted water to cover for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Return potatoes to Dutch oven.

4. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add butter; gradually beat in whipping cream to make mashed potatoes light and fluffy. Season to taste with salt and additional pepper. Sprinkle each serving with 2 tablespoons of the granola.

From the Test KitchenTo Make Ahead:
  • Prepare granola as directed. Transfer to an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Variations:
  • Prefer another potato? Try red-skin, russet, or even sweet potatoes. Like rosemary? Swap out the thyme for an equal amount of fresh rosemary. Have extra celery root? Use half potatoes and half celery root in the mash.
