Mashed Potatoes w/Caramelized Onions & Rosemary

Everyone needs a little comfort food now and then, and these Mashed Potatoes w/Caramelized Onions & Rosemary are definitely the perfect dish.  I served them with a nice, grilled steak (thanks for grilling, Dad!).  I caramelized some onions, garlic, and fresh rosemary.  Rosemary goes really well with potatoes, so that was my herb of choice.  Herbs are one of those things that I play around with in dishes.  Some herbs are notorious for complementing certain foods; mint, for example, goes really well with fresh fruit and peas.  I love making pasta with peas and fresh mint.   Trust me, it takes delicious.  Here’s a picture on Pinterest that I thought I’d share with you.  Enjoy the mashed potatoes!
Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 large Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper, for seasoning
Directions:
  1. In a large stock pot, cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil.  Cook until a fork easily pierces the potatoes, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat.  Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are caramelized, about 15 minutes.  Add garlic and rosemary to onions and saute an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes and mash, adding milk until smooth.  Add onions, garlic, and rosemary and stir to combine.  Season liberally with salt and pepper.
