Emeril's Easy Mashed Potatoes
Emeril Kicks Up the Traditional Southern Side
Emeril Lagasse kicks up a traditional pot roast dinner with mashed potatoes. Try his take in your kitchen.
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.
