Ingredients

5 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed

Kosher salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 small yellow onion, minced

2 cups whole milk

Freshly ground black pepper

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Add the potatoes to a large pot of cold water. Season with salt and bring to a boil. Simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions and saute until tender and just golden. Add the milk to heat and season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Drain the potatoes well in a colander. Add them back to the pot you cooked them in and mash until smooth. Fold in the hot milk and onions, extra-virgin olive oil and chopped parsley.
