Hi my name is Lori with Figs Catering in Austin, Texas on behalf of Expert Village today we are going to show you how to make a entire Thanksgiving meal. Now that we have mashed our ingredients I'm going to go ahead and start adding our wet ingredients. First I'm going to start off with about a cup of heavy cream that may seem like a lot but it is going to absorb very quickly. I'm also going to start off with a stick of butter. Again if you want to watch your weight just simply element the cream and use the half amount of butter and use chicken stock instead. I'm going to go ahead and mash it up all together and I'm going to see what else I need to add more of. Because we have the skin on it is going to be a little bit more of a chunkier mashed potato verses the smooth creamy one. If you wanted a smooth creamy mashed potato again you would use your potato riser. Okay my potatoes at the bottom are still a little bit dry so I'm going to add in another half cup of cream give or take and then another 1/2 stick of butter. This butter has been soften but you don't necessarily need to use soften butter it just melts faster if it is already been soften. I'm going to stir it with the spoon and see if I can get all the way and all the corners of this pot here. So what we need to do next is add crush black pepper and some people prefer to use white pepper I simple prefer the taste of black pepper so I'm going to use black pepper in mine. If you prefer to use white pepper beyond means go ahead and use that. I want to put about a tablespoon of black pepper. Again you can do this to taste. Okay once I got that in I'm going to add about 2 tablespoons or so of salt. Now one of the things about salt is first of all potatoes usually take in a lot of salt but it is always harder to remove the salt from a potatoes or from any meal for that matter then it is to add it. So go ahead and start a little bit more conservatively with the salt and you can always add more in. The last thing I'm going to do is taste it to make sure I don't need to add more salt. It is perfect and that is how you make roasted garlic mashed potatoes.
