Stumpteput

This is a simple yet very tasty side dish and a great way to get kids to eat their carrots. The recipe comes from one of those cookbooks high school kids used to sell. The person who submitted it wrote that it is a recipe from her Dutch great grandmother. She thinks perhaps the name was made up to amuse her large brood of children.

4 large potatoes
4 large carrots
1 onion
salt and pepper
half and half
butter

Peel potatoes, carrots, and onion. Cut into large chunks as you would for mashed potatoes. Cover with water and boil until tender. Drain off water and allow to stand a few minutes for vegetables to dry off.

Mash vegetables, adding salt and pepper to taste and half and half, mixing until smooth and creamy.

When the mixture is all fluffy with a beautiful shade of pale orange, transfer it into a pretty serving dish and put a big chunk of butter on top. May serve with or without gravy.

    Sounds like a great dish and I love carrots – raw – but CANNOT eat them cooked! Something about the texture of them just totally gets to me. I think it would even with potatoes.

    Sorry to be the downer on this post . . . how about potatoes and more potatoes?!
