Mashed Potatoes

Try this rich but not too sinful version of the traditional mashed potatoes.
Makes 5 cups, ten ½-cup servings
Approximate preparation time: 35 minutes


2½ pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
10 chives, trimmed, dried well and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 ounce Parmesan, cut into ½-inch pieces
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup whole milk
½ cup mascarpone cheese


Put the potatoes into a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are tender.
Insert the small metal chopping blade into the small work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Add the chives and pulse to finely chop; remove work bowl and reserve.
Insert the reversible shredding disc on the fine shredding side into the large work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor and shred the Parmesan. Reverse the disc to the medium shredding side. Once the potatoes are tender, shred the potatoes. Replace the shredding disc with the large metal chopping blade. Add the butter, salt, and pepper and pulse to combine. Add the milk through the feed tube while pulsing, until incorporated. Add the mascarpone and chives and pulse until just combined. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly.
