The name of these potatoes really does not reflect the truth. In theory, they should be eaten only once per year, but these butter rich tubers are addictive. All winter long, this velvety mash accompanies anything from fish to fowl to four-legged beast. Sometimes a culprit is caught with a spoon and the bowl in hand eating cold leftovers in front of the refrigerator. This may sound a bit controversial, but small dollops of mashed potato make a wonderful flatbread topping. Add some prosciutto, some spring onion, and a healthy pouring of olive oil over the entire pizza, and pop in a 500 degree oven for 2 minutes. Yummy…potatoes have fed peasants for hundreds of years, but butter and full fat cream turn these into a luxurious treat fit for consumption all winter long.
