This is the way I make mashed potatoes to accompany a special meal. My family goes crazy over these creamy mashed potatoes and no matter how much I make, I never seem to have any left over. This is fabulous with beautiful cuts of steaks. You could possibly sub cream cheese mixed with sour cream for the mascarpone cheese, although I have never made them this way.. There is, of course, a recipe for mascarpone cheese substitute here on Zaar.
