Posted by Carol on November 21, 2008
Ok, kids, there’s a lot going today in Saturday Stirrings, so make sure you don’t miss a thing. We have a recipe to share, a link for a coupon, and a Giveaway! Oh, yeah, Mr. Linky’s here, too.
Here’s the deal. Progresso is offering 3 of my readers a really cool Progresso Perfect Recipe Gift Basket. Each basket includes a free coupon for Progresso Broth, a recipe card holder, recipe box and wicker basket, as well as a set of serving spoons and a . For a picture and more details about the baskets, go here.
The recipe I am sharing today is from Progresso. Since one of the ingredients is Progresso Broth, here is a link for a coupon you can print right from your computer that you can use towards the purchase of Progresso Broth:
Michael Chiarello’s Mashed Potato Gratin
- Unsalted butter for greasing casserole
- 2 1/2 cups Progresso® chicken broth
- 4 large russet potatoes, peeled, diced (5 cups)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup Progresso® Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs
Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter 2-quart casserole. Pour broth into 2-quart saucepan. Add potatoes; stir in 1 teaspoon salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender. Place colander over medium bowl; drain potatoes, reserving broth.
Rinse and dry saucepan. Cook 2 tablespoons of the butter and the garlic in saucepan over low heat 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Return potatoes to saucepan with butter and garlic; mash with potato masher.
Add 1 cup of the reserved broth to potatoes; mix until smooth. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
Spoon potato mixture into casserole. Top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and the bread crumbs. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
