Emeril Lagasse kicks up a traditional pot roast dinner with mashed potatoes. Try his take in your kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 4 large Idaho potatoes (3 pounds), peeled, quartered lengthwise, and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    Place the potatoes in a heavy medium saucepan with 1 teaspoon of the salt and add enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 25 minutes.

    Drain in a colander. Return the potatoes to the saucepan. Add the cream, butter, the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. With the heat on medium-low, mash and stir the mixture until well blended, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
