This is an appertizer/side dish perfect for the winter. The sweet pear and red onions goes well with these sweet mashed potatoes. I choose to omit the quantity so that you can make as much or as little as you like~
Peal and cut potatoes into large chunks and add into pot of water to boil. Cook until potatoes are soft and break off easily. Drain (the heat from pot will evaporate the rest of the water). Add butter, some salt and pepper to taste, and mash mash away.
Meanwhile, in another pan add some olive oil and cook red onions until brown. Remove onions. In the same pan add sliced pears and red wine and cook until tender. Salt & Pepper. Arrange on plate and serve~
