Whipped Potatoes !


                                                                         

13 Large White potatoes pared
1/4 Cup which is 1/2 a stick of butter
1/2 to 3/4 of a  Cup of Half & Half or the same amount of Milk but the Half & Half is AWESOME!
1 TSP Salt
 Cold WATER to cover the potatoes

For variation:  to the pot of boiling potatoes add 2 or 3 cloves of garlic for a mild garlic flavor, just whip the cooked garlic right along with  the potatoes. OR add a peeled sliced onion to the boiling pot for an onion flavor, the onion will cook soft and whip into the potatoes  !

Stir the salt in  to the water in a large pot. As you pare each potato drop it into the salted water this will keep your potato from turning brown. Once all the potatoes are in the pot & covered with water, add more water if you need to. Bring to a boil in keep on a low boil until all potatoes are soft. This will take about 45 minutes. Turn off the stove burner &drain your potatoes, reserve 2 cups of the potato water for your gravy. Once drained put them back into the pot & place on the warm burner that you just turned off. If you use a gas stove the warm cooking pot will be enough heat to help dry off some of the moisture . While you leave the potatoes in the warm pot, melt the butter in the Half & Half. I do this in microwave in the glass measuring cup . Heat on medium heat about 3 minutes BUT do NOT let it boil you just want the butter to melt & cream to warm. Now Dump your potatoes into a large mixing bowl & beat on low until somewhat creamy. Slowly beat in the butter & Half & Half on high. Only add enough butter & cream until you have a nice thick creamy whipped texture. it will depend on your potatoes & may vary every time you make them. This should only take about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve in a pretty bowl ! Decadent Whipped Potatoes that you deserve not just on holidays but whenever you want to serve them !This will serve 8 people AMPLY !
