  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 tablespoon salt, divided

  • ¾ cup half-and-half

  • ½ cup butter

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Cover potatoes with cold water by 1 inch in a large saucepan. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until potatoes are fork-tender but still hold their shape, about 10 minutes; drain.

  2. Return potatoes to saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until excess liquid has evaporated and potatoes are dry, about 1 minute. Process hot potatoes through a potato ricer into a large bowl.

  3. Meanwhile, heat half-and-half and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warmed and butter is melted, about 3 minutes; gradually pour into riced potatoes. Stir to incorporate; season with pepper and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Garnish with parsley.
