  • 2 # large Russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 T unsalted butter plus more for brushing**
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 3 sprigs rosemary


  • Add the potato cubes and salt to a medium pot and cover with water. Simmer over medium heat until you can easily slide a fork into the cubes, then strain.
  • In a small pan, add the butter and melt over medium heat. Add the thyme and rosemary and cook for about 2 minutes to infuse the butter.
  • Pass the warm potato cubes through a ricer over a large bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Add the infused butter and serve.*


For a golden crust, swirl the top with a spoon and brush generously with melted butter or olive oil. Place directly under the broiler until golden brown.
To make these potatoes vegan, simply substitute butter for extra virgin olive oil.
