Easy Mashed Potatoes with Parmesan, Garlic, and Rosemary
Nutty and salty grated Parmesan, minced fresh garlic, and earthy rosemary make for a decidedly Italian-inspired take on classic mashed potatoes.
Why This Recipe Works
For an easy, creamy mash, we started by cooking sliced Yukon Gold potatoes in well-seasoned water. We used half-and-half because it is richer than milk but not as decadent as heavy cream. Microwaving the half-and-half with the butter before combining the mixture with the mashed potatoes ensured a bowl of piping-hot potatoes on the dinner table. We added grated Parmesan cheese, minced fresh garlic, and minced fresh rosemary for a side dish with Italian flair.
