Pear-Potato Mash - Get your Fruit & Veggie all in ONE!

I had 3 lonely pears in the fridge about to go bad, so I needed to find a way to use them for dinner last night.  I do not eat a lot of sweets, so my task was to make them savory.  

So I decided to introduce my pears to a distant veggie cousin the potato!  Sounds crazy, but it's actually delicious!  

 

Pear-Potato Mash 

3 pears
3 potatoes
2 sliced shallots
2 tbsp. butter
3- 4 tbsp. milk 
salt and pepper

It's a Potato-Pear Face Off!  

I pealed, cored the pears, and sliced both into bite size pieces.  



Place them in a pot and cover with water.  Bring it to a boil, and let them boil until they are tender.  It takes about 10 minutes.  

Drain the pears and taters in a colander, then place into a bowl.  

Then add 2 tbsp. butter to a saute pan, and add 2 sliced shallots.  Saute until soft and add this mixture including the butter to the pears and taters!  



I added a little cream and mashed everything by hand.  You can use a food processor is you want a smoother consistency.  Either way, this is delicious!  

I felt so good about it, because I was getting my veggies and fruits ALL in one dish!  My FBP even scarfed these down too!  Try it!
