Recipe Name: Aligot Mashed Potatoes With Garlic And Cheese Submitted by: Administrator

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 2

1 Pound(s) Desiree or King Edward
2 Fat cloves garlic, peeled
and halved
1 Ounce(s) Butter
8 Ounce(s) Lancashire cheese, grated
Salt and freshly milled
Black pepper
1 Fat, 0 Other Carbohydrates
Place the garlic in a small saucepan with the butter, then leave it on
a gentle heat to melt and infuse for 30 minutes. Thinly pare and
discard the potato skins and cut into even-sized chunks, or cut any
large potatoes into quarters and small ones into halves. 2 Place the
potatoes in a steamer, then pour boiling water into the saucepan. Fit
the steamer over, sprinkle with 1 dsp of salt, put a lid on and let
them steam for 20-25 mins, until tender in the centre when tested with
a skewer. 3 Remove them, transfer to a large bowl (preferably warm)
and cover with a cloth to absorb some of the steam. Set an electric
hand whisk to slow speed and begin to break up the potatoes, then add
butter and garlic, some black pepper and a handful of grated cheese.
4 Switch the speed to high and continue adding the cheese, a handful
at a time. As you whisk the cheese in the potatoes will turn
translucent and glossy and, as you lift the whisk, it will form stiff,
glossy peaks. 5 When all the cheese is in, serve very quickly. Note:
As the cheese goes in, the mixture becomes stiff and clings to the
whisk, but keep going and it will part company with the whisk
eventually. Also, if you want to keep it warm, place the bowl over a
pan of simmering water, but don't leave it too long. Converted by
