Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

Published by Martha Stewart in April 2004

Serve these flavorful mashed potatoes with Braised Brisket.

INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 large onions, finely chopped
Coarse salt
2 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
4 garlic cloves, crushed

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onions, season with coarse salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions are caramelized, 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine potatoes, garlic, and enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil; add salt. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup liquid.
  3. Return potatoes and garlic to pan. Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt. Mash until smooth, adding reserved liquid as needed. Stir in onions, and serve immediately.
