If there’s one word that comes to mind when describing truffle mashed potatoes… it’s decadence!
We’re not gonna lie… you’ll have to invest in a pricier ingredient or two. But this dish is worth every penny.
Holy Mother of Mashed Potatoes!
Potato choice matters.
There are so many wonderful potatoes to choose from today. But we like to use basic russets for this dish.
We’ve tested many types of potatoes and find that russets yield the fluffiest consistency when whipping, as we do in this recipe.
Other waxier varieties can become gluey or loose. when creamy ingredients are added.
The russet, married with these beautiful truffle ingredients, is a 5-star restaurant quality dish. One that will permeate your culinary consciousness forever.
This isn’t a “smasher” recipe. You’ll need a good mixer… a handheld will be just fine. We like this one from KitchenAid.
