Potato Parsnip Mash





Potatoes and parsnips mashed together with a little garlic, sour cream and butter make a surprisingly tasty side dish. The parsnips add a slightly sweet and spicy taste to the potatoes that I really enjoyed.


Hurricane Sandy is keeping most of us New Yorkers indoors today. So far I haven’t lost power so I figured I would share this recipe in case I do later (crossing fingers I won’t).


I had bought these parsnips the other day with no real plans for them, and decided I would try them mixed into my mashed potatoes. Parsnips, quite honestly are not a vegetable I grew up eating, so I never really know what to do with them. In the past, I’ve added them to stews and soups but I was pleasantly surprised how well they tasted mixed in with potatoes. My husband agreed, and they made a wonderful side dish to the roast beef[1] I prepared in the oven.


Do you have a favorite way you enjoy parsnips? Would love to hear how you prepare them!

Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

by Pam on October 10, 2012

My kids are big fans of mashed potatoes and they are always very happy when I serve them with dinner. I decided to change it up and bit and make smashed potatoes with butter, sour cream, and chives. I used Yukon gold potatoes because they are rich, creamy, and so delicious.  I served this side dish with the Italian Meatloaf[1] and the Sautéed Kale, Grape Tomatoes, Garlic, and Parmesan[2] for a delicious and comforting meal.  We all LOVED these potatoes and they tasted great (with the leftover meatloaf) the next day too.

Heat a large pot of salted water until boiling.  Add the potatoes and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until fork tender and cooked through.  Drain the potatoes; add the sour cream, butter, chives, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Mash by hand with a potato masher until creamy.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy.

Gordon Ramsay’s Potatoes Boulangère Recipe from The F Word

Gordon Ramsay made these potatoes to go along with his Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb[1] on The F Word[2], Series One, Episode One.

His commies used a Mandoline Slicer[3] to get uniformly thin slices of potatoes, but used a knife for the onion. You can use a knife or a slicer for both, but try to get the slices as even as possible.

Ingredients:

  • 1 liter chicken stock (roughly 4 1/4 cups, or just over a quart)
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 3 crushed cloves of garlic
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 large onions, peeled and sliced
  • 4 large Desiree potatoes peeled and finely sliced (on a mandolin if possible)
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (392 degrees if you have a digital oven)
Bring the chicken stock to a boil and add thyme, rosemary, and crushed garlic cloves. Simmer a few minutes and strain (remember, retain the chicken stock, not the herbs). Set aside.

Add olive oil to a hot heavy pan and saute the onions and finely chopped garlic until softened and lightly colored.

Coat the inside of a casserole dish or oven safe pan and layer the onions followed by the potatoes. Continue alternating potatoes and onions until finished. Don’t forget to season each layer with salt & pepper as you go.

Pour the chicken stock from earlier over the potato mixture until it’s about 2/3rds full. Press down on the mixture to help the potatoes absorb as much stock as possible. Drizzle a little olive oil on top.

Bake in the oven for approximately 20 – 25 minutes or until soft and golden on top.
