Recipe: Parmesan Smashed Potatoes
- 3 pounds red new potatoes, unpeeled
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus 1 teaspoon
- 1 cup light cream
- 1/4 pound unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Place the whole red potatoes unpeeled in a stockpot and add cold water to cover all the potatoes. Bring the water to a boil and season with a 1 Tbs of Kosher salt. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 25 to 35 minutes, until completely tender and then drain.
In a small saucepan, over medium heat melt the butter and warm the cream together. Put the drained potatoes into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. On low speed mix up the potatoes for a just a few seconds and then slowly add ¾ of the hot cream and butter to the potatoes. Turn off the mixer and fold in the last ¼ of the cream/butter mixture. Then fold in the sour cream, Parmesan cheese, the remaining teaspoon of salt, and the ½ teaspoon of pepper.
Taste for seasoning and serve immediately.
