pommes de terre mousseline

that's just french for creamy mashed potatoes . recently , i've been browsing in borders trying to diversify my cooking . i peeked into a delicate blue book that provided this simple recipe to start off my re-appearance here . i know it's a common dish...but i dare guarantee that this is the richest one i've ever tasted :

what you need ar ?

1 kg potatoes (er...ya...i made this in bulk...adjust accordingly hor)
200 g unsalted butter
300 ml whipped cream
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

fresh green herbs ( e.g. parsley , chives )

how liao ?

boil the potatoes until soft . cool sufficiently . the skin should peel off easily by now . mash the potatoes and set them aside ( i realise everyone has their own ways of mashing...from efforting a spoon to classy kitchen i leave it up to you lar hor )

heat the butter in a pot / pan (depending on how much you're making lor) and chuck in the mashed potatoes . mix thoroughly .

fold in the whipped cream .

finish off with the ground nutmeg , salt and pepper (optional) and garnish with freshly chopped chives and a hint of parsley .

voila...pommes de terre mousseline.
