Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes
The Joy of Kosher site is a source of a plethora of recipes for the holidays as well as the weekdays. While it is a kosher site, these recipes can be enjoyed by everyone. Actually, when I visit the site, I get lost in it. There is so much going on, including the recipes, that I hop around from one thing to another. I, usually end up with the recipes and this time, I came across these caramelized onion mashed potatoes.
Two of my favorite foods, mashed potatoes and caramelized onions. My guess is that these two are favorites for many of you. I will go as far as saying, many of you probably consider this, a comfort food. I certainly do.
Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes (Adapted)
2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice (I got the nicest Yukon Gold potatoes at Costco.)
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 medium onions, diced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup chicken soup
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
In a large pot, cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 18 to 20 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from pot and drain in a colander.
While potatoes are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and 1 teaspoon salt and sauté for 10 to 12 minutes or until softened and browned, stirring constantly.
Serve immediately or cover to keep warm.
