Marsala Mashed Potatoes recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

As I was making mashed potatoes to go along with the Chicken Marsala, I decided to add some of the broth from the marsala mixture and then top them with the mushrooms.

These were seriously delicious. I will be making these exact same potatoes next time I make the chicken marsala. I loved the flavor combination and the mushrooms piled on top were our favorite part.

Rich with butter and cream, aromatic and seasoned very simply with salt, pepper and thyme. These thyme potatoes were simply delicious. Mashed potatoes are always a favorite for our family, but this was a step above the average.

    Have you ever tried using marsala wine in dessert? Whip it with egg yolks and sugar to form a sabayon (do this over a double-boiler to warm it up and create a custard of sorts) and serve over fruit (biscotti is also nice to go along side). One of my favorites and so simple. Sorry I got off track there, that's a great idea mixing different flavorings into mashed potatoes. When you think about it they are the perfect vessel for other ingredients. Even making them with olive oil instead of butter is pretty good.
