Perfectly creamy, these Parmesan Mashed Potatoes are nothing short of spectacular. Russet potatoes are lightly seasoned and combined with sour cream, cream cheese and Parmesan cheese making these potatoes the ultimate side dish for any meal! A must for every holiday meal as well!
Any good meal, needs at least one stand-out side dish. It doesn’t need to be fancy, or have lots of ingredients, it simply needs to taste good and compliment what its served with. That is definitely the case with these Parmesan Mashed Potatoes. Not only do they taste wonderful, they are perfectly complimentary to whatever your serving with them – beef, seafood, turkey, chicken or pork.
These potatoes have a fantastic texture. Perfectly creamy, but not over processed or gluey. The butter, sour cream, cream cheese and half-and-half serve to make these potatoes wonderful. Salt and pepper added to your taste preference is all the seasoning you need. The last ingredient is some shredded Parmesan cheese I typically stir in about a 1/2 cup and then top the potatoes with another sprinkling just before serving. It not only tastes amazing, but looks really pretty as well!
It takes a bit of time to boil the potatoes – don’t rush this process, as you’ll just end up with lumpy potatoes. When peeling the potatoes, cut them into smaller 1/2″ slices, that way they won’t take as long to cook all the way through. You’ll know they’re done when they are tender when pieced with a fork or knife.
Here’s how easily these potatoes come together:
With just a little patience, you’ll have potatoes that are restaurant quality! So much better than the instant stuff – once you have these potatoes, you’ll never go back! Take my word for it, home-made Parmesan Mashed Potatoes are worth the little time it takes to make.
This holiday season, or any time of year, enjoy the real-deal!
