Ingredients

  • 2 lbs yellow potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1 inch dice
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 2 oz heavy cream

Instructions

  • Fill a large pot with water.
  • Add potatoes and kosher salt.
  • Turn heat to high and bring the pot to a boil. Then lower the heat to a simmer and cook the potatoes for 12-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are easily pierced by a fork.
  • Drain potatoes and put them back in the pot over the heat. Cook off some of the water in the potatoes, 2-3 minutes over medium while stirring.
  • Move the pot to a hot pad on the counter.
  • Add cream cheese and cream and mash the potatoes until smooth. If they are a little dry, add another splash (about 1 tablespoon) of cream.
  • Taste and add more salt if needed. Serve.

Notes

  • Cream Cheese Substitution: Feel free to use neufchatel cheese in place of cream cheese in the recipe. The texture and flavor are pretty much the same with either cheese.
  • Waffles: Do not use these mashed potatoes to make Mashed Potato Waffles. Cream cheese and waffle makers do not mix.
  • Equipment: I have the Cuisipro Potato Masher.
