      Instructions
      1. Peel potatoes and cut into 2" chunks. Simmer potatoes in lightly salted water until very tender 15-20 minutes. Drain potatoes and return pot to low heat. Mash potatoes over low heat, allowing the potatoes to give off any excess moisture. Once potatoes are smooth, remove from heat and add butter, cream cheese, roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Continue to mash until combined and creamy. Stir in fresh herbs.
      2. Preheat grill to medium high or 450℉. Scoop potatoes onto pre-soaked cedar planks using a 1/4 cup scoop, leaving at least an inch between scoops (can fit 6-8 per plank). Place planks on grill and cook for 15-18 minutes until hot and golden. Remove planks from grill and use to serve potatoes or gently place potatoes onto serving dish and garnish with additional fresh herbs if desired.
      Recipe Notes

      Potatoes can be cooked, mashed, scooped and chilled up to two days in advance. Simply remove from refrigerator and place on pre-soaked planks when ready to grill. Makes 12 1/4 cup scoops.

      To roast garlic, preheat oven to 350℉.  Cut the top off the head of garlic and place on a double layer sheet of foil.  Drizzle with oil and fold foil over bulb, crimping all edges to seal packet.  Place on a baking tray and bake for about 45 minutes until golden and soft. Alternatively, you can make roasted garlic on the grill, here's how Grill Roasted Garlic

Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove with tongs or a slotted spatula to a paper towel lined plate. Keep warm in a low oven while frying remaining onion rings.

          Servings: person
          Instructions
          1. In a small bowl whisk eggs together with a fork. Mix only until well combined without incorporating too much extra air. Mix in white pepper and parsley to combine.
          2. Heat butter in an 8-9" omelet pan or non stick frying pan over medium heat until starting to bubble. Add egg mixture to the pan all at once. Stir with a heat proof rubber spatula, pulling the egg away from the sides and toward the center. Keep eggs moving until starting to set, level out with the spatula and sprinkle cheese on top. At this point check your heat and lower if necessary. Keep pan on heat for about 30 seconds longer to set the eggs and melt the cheese. Remove from heat and loosen omelet from the pan with the rubber spatula.
          3. While tilting the handle side of the pan upward, slide the omelet down the pan towards the bottom end and at the same time roll the top 1/3 edge of the omelet toward the center. Next, fold the bottom 1/3 of the omelet toward the center, creating an elongated shape. Roll omelet off the lower edge of the pan onto a plate. Sprinkle with fresh chives and serve immediately.
          Recipe Notes

          Keeping the eggs moving in the pan until almost set helps ensure no colour forms on the omelet.
