Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes Recipe

These Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes are so fluffy, rich, buttery and creamy. I always get tons positive feedback from our guest when I make this simple yet delicious side dish.


Serving size: 6

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25-30 minutes

Ingredients

6 Yukon gold potatoes

½ cup of heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoon of finely diced onion

2 tablespoons of butter

½ teaspoon of salt


How to make Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes:

1. Peel and cut potatoes in half, then into about ½ inch slices. Rinse and drain them, then add enough water to completely cover the potatoes. Bring them to boil on high heat and add ½ teaspoon of salt. Turn the heat down to medium low and let them simmer for about 15-20 minutes until fully cooked.


2. Drain the potatoes and set aside. In a frying pan melt butter on medium heat and add finely diced onions. Saute the onions for a couple of minutes, then add heavy whipping cream. Let it simmer for a few seconds then pour it in to the pot with your cooked potatoes. Mash your potatoes well and they are ready to serve. If potatoes are still too thick add a little more heavy whipping cream to reach desired consistency.


These Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes go great with Grilled  Honey Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Breast and Grilled Zucchini and Asparagus. You can find the recipes for the two dishes(shown in the picture below) here as well.

Enjoy!
