Mashed Potatoes with Fontina and Italian Parsley
(Pure di Patate con Fontina e Prezzemolo)
 
 
Ingredients:

2 lbs medium-size russet potatoes
3/4 cup half and half
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
1 and 1/4 cups (packed) grated Fontina cheese (about 6 ounces)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F.

Using small knife, pierce potatoes in several places.

Place potatoes on small baking sheet.

Bake until tender when pierced with skewer, about 1 hour. Cool slightly.

Bring half and half to simmer in heavy small saucepan.

Scrape potatoes from skin into large bowl.

Using ricer, food mill or potato masher, mash potatoes.

Mix in half and half.

Add butter; stir vigorously until butter melts and potatoes are smooth.

Stir in 2/3 of cheese and 3 tablespoons parsley.

Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer potatoes to 11 x 7 x 2-inch glass baking dish.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese. (Can be prepared 2 hours ahead. Cover and let stand at room temperature.)

Preheat oven to 425F.

Bake potatoes until heated through and cheese melts, about 15 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

That's it!
