Michael Symon's four-ingredient potatoes get plenty of flavor from browned butter and crème fraîche. Reserve a little browned butter to drizzle on the potatoes just before serving.

  1. Salt
  2. 3 1/2 pounds white or all-purpose potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  3. 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. 1 cup milk
  5. 1/4 cup crème fraîche
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes over moderate heat until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain well. Return the potatoes to the pot and cook over high heat for 1 minute to dry them out slightly. Pass the potatoes through a ricer and return them to the pot.
  2. In a small saucepan, cook the butter over moderate heat until the milk solids turn dark golden, about 4 minutes. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the brown butter to the potatoes along with the milk and crème fraîche and stir well. Season with salt and stir over moderate heat until hot. Drizzle the remaining brown butter over the potatoes and serve.
Make Ahead The mashed potatoes can be refrigerated overnight and rewarmed in the oven, covered with foil.
