Lumpy Or Whipped Mashed Potato Recipe

Q:

I have read on some of your posts to not over mix my mashed potatoes and to use the Russet Burbank variety, as they can withstand some abuse and not turn gluey.  My boyfriend doesn’t like lumpy mashed potatoes. Is there a recipe I can surprise him with for Thanksgiving?

A:

Yes, we have several. Chef David Burke of NYC shared this one a few years ago, but it is still one of my favorites.
