Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means turkey and some delicious sides. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving here’s a delicious mashed potato recipe. 

Ingredients

  • 3lbs of russet or yukon gold potatoes 
  • Kosher salt 
  • ¾ of unsalted butter
  • ½ of heavy cream 

Steps 

  • Wash and peel your potatoes
  • Dice your potatoes into even cubes (this helps the potatoes cook evenly) 
  • Then put the potatoes into a large pot and fill it with cold water
  • Bring the potatoes to a boil over high heat
  • While boiling add a pinch or two of kosher salt to the water
  • When the potatoes are fork tender, meaning your fork can go into the potato easily, drain the water from the potatoes 
  • Put your potatoes in the same pot and let them rest for five minutes
  • Then, in a saucepan or smaller pot, add your butter and heavy cream 
  • Warm this over medium-low heat
  • Then mash the potatoes with either a hand mixer or even a mashing tool into a bowl
  • Then add your heavy cream and butter mixture to the bowl
  • Mixed until completely combined and add salt on top

Claire Steinbrook, Lifestyle Editor
Hi Everyone! It’s Claire and this year I’m coming back as  Lifestyle Editor. I’m going into my junior year and I’m so excited to be back on The Journal staff. Other than The Journal, I really don’t do much except focus on school, which I hope gets me into The Business School of Kelley at IU Bloomington. Other than school and The Journal, I like to watch TV and movies. Some of my favorites are “Modern Family,” “Justified” and “Twilight”. I am very quiet and introverted, but if I’m not by myself, you can usually find me with my mom, or my best friend Mallory. I absolutely love going to concerts, especially with my mom and have been to at least 10 this summer, my latest one being Beyoncé. Along with concerts, I love traveling so much. It’s so cool to see all the different sites and I seem to be the happiest when I’m traveling. But, going back to The Journal, after writing for Sports last year, I realized that writing wasn’t something I wanted to give up just yet. So, this year I will continue to write for Sports and I hope to win some more awards like I did last year.  But, I’m also so excited to be Lifestyle Editor and I can’t wait to bring new content that The Journal hasn’t seen before and I hope you guys can also find enjoyment in it as well!
