Ricotta Mashed Potatoes
Ricotta adds a cheesy tang to these rich and fluffy mashed potatoes that will set them apart and go well with that special dinner.
You may also put the potatoes before browning in single serve ramekins to add to the elegance and make each guest feel special.
How to Make Ricotta Mashed Potatoes
- Heat oven to broiler setting. Peel and cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Place potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and continue to cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes more. Drain and return all but 1 cup of potatoes to the pot.
- Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in the ricotta, milk, butter, remaining salt, and pepper to blend. Add the reserved potatoes and mash just until combined. Spoon potatoes into an oven safe casserole. Place under broiler until browned. Serve hot. Sprinkle with chives if you desire.
