Rosemary, cream and butter are expected additions, but the wild card (white chocolate!) is what makes this creamy mashed potatoes worthy of a holiday dinner.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 6-quart Dutch oven place potatoes and the 1 tablespoon salt in enough water to cover. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 18 to 20 minutes or until tender. Drain completely; return to pot. Cover to keep warm.

  • In a small saucepan stir together cream, butter, and white chocolate over low heat until butter and chocolate begin to melt. Add to hot potatoes. Mash with a potato masher until desired consistency. Stir in rosemary, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper and, if desired, additional butter.

5 stars, delicious, subtle & easy to make! I've hosted a lot of parties & never ran out of potatoes until these! The white chocolate does add a little tantalizing "something", a little back note of sweetness that blends perfectly with the buttery Yukons. I doubled salt & pepper.

Really good guys!!! You might be surprised, the white chocolate just adds a little something your guest can't quite put their finger on, this might become a regular thing for all holiday mashed potatoes.
