Preparation

  1. Add the potatoes, bay leaves, garlic, rosemary, and thyme to a large pot. Pour in the cream and milk, bring to a simmer over medium heat, and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes, reserving the cooking liquid, and discard the herbs and garlic. Press the potatoes through a potato ricer into a large bowl.
  3. Add about 1½ cups of the reserved cooking liquid to the potatoes and stir until creamy. Add the butter, salt, and pepper, and stir to incorporate.
  4. Garnish with thyme leaves, if desired.
  5. Note: You can save any extra cooking liquid and use it to rehydrate leftover mashed potatoes the next day.
  6. Enjoy!
