  • Servings: 6

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February/March


  • 2 pounds russet or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons truffle butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Place potatoes in a medium stockpot, and cover with cold water. Add salt. Place over high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, and cook until tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 20 minutes. Drain well, then press through a ricer into a medium bowl.

  2. While potatoes are cooking, place milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat just until it comes to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, and keep warm.

  3. Add milk, then truffle butter and pepper, to potatoes, stirring until butter is completely melted. Season with salt.
