Carmelized Onion Mashed Potatoes

Thursday, which is actually the new Friday, has become my Susie Homemaker day. I stay in and concoct homemade beauty and skincare recipes, and experiment with cooking. Experiment is the best word to describe what takes place when I’m in a kitchen seeing that I’m not exactly sure what the hell I’m doing just yet, but everything takes practice right! What I have discovered is the bombest garlic mashed potato recipe with caramelized onions. Best winter time meal by far. The recipe is really simple and affordable, you probably already have everything you need.

What You’ll Need
-        3-5 baby red potatoes
-        1 large onion
-        2 garlic cloves
-        Fresh thyme and or parsley flakes
-        Stick of salted butter


Rinse your potatoes and throw them in a pot of boiling water, make sure the water covers the potatoes. Let your potatoes boil until they’re soft and easily mushable. You can test them after about 10-15min by sticking a fork in them; if the fork easily cuts into the potato and it’s soft, it should be ready.

While your potatoes are boiling, chop your onions. Finely diced, or nice and lengthy is up to you, but be sure to finely dice your garlic cloves. Heat up a sauce pan with olive oil and throw in your onions and garlic; season with salt and pepper and sauté until your onions are caramelized.

Drain your potatoes in a colander and empty them into a large bowl. Use a potato smasher to begin mashing your potatoes, slowly folding in your onion and garlic mix along with slices from your salted butter. Continue to mash and fold all of your ingredients together until your potatoes are a nice chunky consistency and your onion mix is evenly distributed. Feel free to add more butter and or salt and pepper to your liking. Serve and sprinkle with fresh thyme or parsley. Great dish to serve along side the Rataouille I recently prepared. It’ll be bomb. Enjoy!
