Über-Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough cool water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and lightly season water with salt.Advertisement
Boil potatoes 10 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain and push through a potato ricer (see Note) into a bowl. Alternately, transfer potatoes to a bowl and mash until desired consistency. Stir in milk, cream cheese, butter, parsley, salt and pepper until well combined. Spread into prepared dish and top with grated Parmesan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, until top begins to brown. If desired, increase oven temperature to broil and broil potatoes up to 3 minutes, until cheese is golden. To make ahead: Prepare potatoes, top with Parmesan and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before baking.
We like OXO's ricer ($30).
