  • 2 lb EarthFresh Yellow Potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, reserve half
  • 2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 clove garlic

Wash and dry potatoes, then cut into evenly-sized pieces. Place into a large pot of cold, salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook potatoes until fork tender. Remove from heat and drain. Working in small batches, press cooked potatoes through a potato ricer into a large bowl. Set aside.

To make caramelized onions: Heat oil and 2 tbsp of butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add sliced onions, sugar and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions are golden brown, about 30-40 minutes. Set aside.

Heat cream, garlic, bay leaves and 2 tbsp of butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. When hot, pour into bowl of mashed potatoes, stirring until smooth. Discard the garlic and bay leaf.
