Homemade Mashed Potatoes - Smooth, fluffy and creamy mashed potatoes that take just 30 minutes to make! My all time favorite side dish recipe and a must-make for Thanksgiving. These are the absolute best mashed potatoes!
5poundspotatoes(peeled, washed and cut into 2-inch pieces)
1sticksalted butter (1/2 cup)
Fill a large pot of water and bring water to a boil with 1 teaspoon salt.
Peel and wash potatoes. Dice into 2 inch pieces. Place potatoes in the pan and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until a fork inserts easily. Drain potatoes and place back in pan. Let steam evaporate.
Add butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher. If you want them extra creamy use an electric mixer. Add a Tablespoon or two more heavy creamy if you’d like them even creamier.
