Mashed potatoes with caramelized shallots

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 tablespoons Butter, divided
2 teaspoons Olive oil
1 cup Shallots, thinly sliced
6 larges White or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
½ cup Warm milk, (to 3/4 cup)
1 teaspoon Salt, or to taste

1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter with the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When hot, add the sliced shallots. Saute 15 minutes, until very soft and golden. Set aside.

2. Put the potatoes into a pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Drain the potatoes. Put into a large bowl and add the remaining tablespoons butter, caramelized shallots, warm milk and salt. Using an electric mixer or potato masher, mash the potatoes. Serve hot.
