Mashed Potatoes and Turnips with Caramelized Onions and Rosemary


I gave my Dad a potato ricer for Christmas.  Thus, we decided to make mashed potatoes for Christmas Dinner.  

The best way to make mashed potatoes is to avoid over mixing at all costs, because it will make the potatoes "gooey."  But you don't want lumpy potatoes either.

This recipe combines lots of fun ingredients:  Parsnips, Rosemary, and Caramelized Onions...yum!  I love parsnips, however I do believe the vegetable is an acquired taste.

Let me see....some tricks for making mashed potatoes:

Start potatoes in cold water or chicken broth (broth is better)

Remove potatoes from boiling water when cooked but still firm and mash or rice immediately

Never add cold ingredients to the potatoes

Add butter, cream (or milk), and salt to potatoes when they are still hot... the more butter the better



Assemble your ingredients!


Cut and peel as necessary.  Try to cut the parsnips and potatoes into approximately similar size pieces.


Caramelized onions are amazing in anything.



Rice your potatoes hot!


Add hot milk and butter to your potatoes.  And plenty of salt to taste.


Mix in rosemary and caramelized onions.


We topped our mashed potatoes with the short rib goodness at the bottom of the pan.  Delicious!
