I’m one of those people who just has to change things up every so often. Just like with everything else, my food is one of the top change ups I enjoy the most. Mashed potatoes are one of those things that most families have one their dinner tables at least once or if not twice a week so why not change it up a little and give it that extra creamy flavor boost every once and while. Italian cream cheese and tangy sour cream makes this perfect and common side dish a total winner.
8 large red potatoes halved and quartered
6 ounces Mascarpone cream cheese
8 ounces Low fat sour cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
In a large pot of cold water add your halved and quarters potatoes and some salt. Boil over med high heat till tender and a fork pokes easily through. Drain. Add back to pot. Break up potatoes using a standard mixer or potato masher, add in heavy cream, chicken stock,butter and sour cream. Mash or Mix. Next add in mascarpone. Mix till you have your own mashed potato consistency ( I like mine a little chunky so I tend to use a mashed rather than a mixer) . Add in salt and pepper and taste for seasoning. Scoop into a dish, add some dry, chopped fresh parsley or dill and serve.
