Old fashioned comfort food at its best. For Basic Mashed Potatoes, omit the garlic and herbs.
Garlic & Herb Smashed Potatoes
3 pounds Yukon gold or russet potatoes
10-12 cloves garlic, peeled
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon white vinegar
3/4 cup reduced fat milk
1/4 cup half-and-half
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in ½-inch pieces
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white or black pepper
Peel the potatoes and cut in 1/2 - inch slices. Place the potatoes, water, garlic, 1 teaspoon of the kosher salt, and vinegar in the cooking pot of the Cuisinart Pressure Cooker. Cover and select High Pressure. Set timer for 7 minutes. When cooking is completed, use Quick Pressure Release. Turn off. While potatoes are cooking, combine milk with half-&-half and heat to a simmer (gentle bubbles at edges) in a saucepan or in the microwave.
Remove cooking pot and drain water from potatoes. Return cooking pot to Pressure Cooker and select Simmer. Let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes to dry potatoes slightly. Sprinkle with remaining salt. Add heated milk mixture to the Cooking Pot, and using a potato masher suitable for non-stick cookware, mash the potatoes to break up. Add the butter, chives, parsley, and pepper to the potatoes, and mash until they reach the desired texture. Select Keep Warm and cover loosely to hold the potatoes until ready to serve.
