Your favorite side-dish with a twist. Made it first about 2 Thanksgivings ago. My MIL has been pestering me for the recipe since then.
Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with Sauteéed Shallots
4 potatoes, quartered
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 shallot, diced
Boil the potatoes in water until done. Drain.
While potatoes are boiling, heat small skillet over medium heat. Sauteé the shallot until lightly browned. Remove from heat, keep stirring until shallot is properly caramelized. Be careful not to overcook.
Add in buttermilk and shallot to the potatoes and mash until desired consistency is reached.
