 You would be forgiven for thinking that this isn't the  most exciting recipe that you have ever seen . . . because after all what is it, but another version of mashed potatoes.

If you were to not give it a second look however, I have to say . . . you'd be missing out on something really wonderful and pretty special.

Creamy mashed potatoes laced with deliciously caramelized onions . . . the onions lending it a touch of moreish sweetness, that is quite, quite wonderful, to say the least.

It's mash . . . but it's so much more than that.  I do hope you'l try it and if you do, let me know what you think.  I don't think this could get any better, unless of course you add a tablespoon or two of finely grated Parmesan cheese.

Now that my friends .  .  . would simply be awesome.

Printable Recipe

Delicious version of mashed potatoes, kicked up with caramelized onions.

4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut up
lightly salted water to cover
2 medium onions, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 TBS butter, divided
75ml of hot milk (1/3 cup)
fine sea salt and ground white pepper to taste

Place the potatoes in a pot of lightly salted water to cover.  Bring to the boil.  Cook until tender, drain, and then mash.  Whilst the potatoes are cooking, melt one TBS of the butter in a large frying pan.  Add the chopped onions.  Saute, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until the onions soften and begin to caramelize.  Once you have the potatoes mashed, whisk in the hot milk, remaining TBS of butter and the caramelized onions, along with some salt and white pepper.   Serve hot.
