Rustic Mashed Potatoes With Mascarpone And Chives

Yield: 6 servings
1 teaspoon salt
3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 3-inch pieces
10 cloves garlic, peeled and ends cut off
1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
1 cup milk
Ground white pepper
3 tablespoons finely
chopped chives, divided

Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add salt, potatoes and garlic. Simmer, covered, until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Drain potatoes and garlic in a colander; return to pot. Dry potatoes over high heat, tossing them until all moisture is evaporated, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Transfer potatoes and garlic to a large bowl. Immediately mash potatoes with a potato masher, potato ricer or an electric mixer. Add mascarpone and milk; beat with a wooden spoon or wire whisk to a smooth but not soupy consistency. When liquid is absorbed, add salt and pepper to taste and 2 tablespoons chives. Transfer to a serving bowl; garnish with remaining 1 tablespoon chives. Serve immediately.
