Attached are two missing recipes from your Horn & Hardart Automat Page that
were in this book I own: "The Automat: The History, Recipes, and Allure of
Horn & Hardart's Masterpiece" by Marianne Hardart and Lorraine Diehl -
Mashed Potatoes and Cup Custard
I actually have that book myself. I have the cup custard recipe already posted here: 4-25-2011
I just failed to list the link on the H & H page.
The main reason I didn't already have the H & H mashed potatoes recipe posted already is because
I have never received a request for it. I usually don't post recipes, even if have them, until I
get a request for them. As popular as H & H recipes are, I should have already posted the mashed
potato recipe. I just overlooked it.
Thanks for sending these.
Horn & Hardart Mashed Potatoes
6 medium Idaho potatoes
4 tablespoons(1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
3/4 cup milk, at room temperature
In a 3-quart saucepan over high heat, heat the potatoes and
enough water to cover them to boiling. Reduce the heat to
low and simmer approximately 30 minutes, or until fork-tender.
Drain in a colander and allow the potatoes to sit for 2 minutes,
to dry completely.
In an electric mixer at low speed, blend the potatoes, butter,
salt, and pepper for 1 to 2 minutes, until the potatoes are
completely broken up. Add the milk gradually while whipping.
Whip at high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, until the potatoes are
light and fluffy.
