Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes Yukon golds could be substituted, peeled and large chopped

  • ½ tsp black peppercorns
  • 2 sprigs rosemary

  • 2/3 lb smoked provolone cheese cut into pieces
  • 2.5 ounces sliced salami cut into thick ribbons

Instructions

  1. In a medium sauce pot, bring potatoes to boil in heavily salted water, along with the sachet of spices and herbs. Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 35-40 minutes. Drain from water, once potatoes are done, and discard sachet.

Once liquid has been added, speed up mixer and beat potatoes until creamy texture is achieved. Add cheese, chives, and salami to potatoes. Mix until well incorporated.
