Description

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen


Ingredients

Scale

2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes

1 1/2 sticks butter (melted and browned)

1 cup buttermilk

salt and pepper


Instructions

Wash potatoes, Peel or leave skins on according to preference, and cut into cubes. Bring water and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil. Add potatoes and cook for 12 – 15  minutes or until soft. Strain and return potatoes to pot.

While potatoes boil, add butter to a skillet over medium high heat. Once butter is melted and foaming, continue to cook and constantly stir until butter starts to brown. When butter turns a light brown and begins to smell “nutty,”  turn off the heat and remove the pan immediately.

Add browned butter to potatoes and whip with a hand mixer. Add buttermilk gradually until you have the consistency you want. May take more or less than 1 cup. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Notes

If you like garlic in your potatoes, add 4-6 cloves in with the potatoes as they are boiling.
