Homemade Creamy Mashed Potatoes for any occasion.
  • 2 lb Yukon gold or russet potatoes, peeled and cubed in 2 inch pieces
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • Salt and pepper
  1. In a large pot, bring 8 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt to a boil. Add potatoes and cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until the potatoes fall apart when pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes in a colander. Transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl and cream potatoes with butter and cream on medium low speed with a hand mixer for a few minutes. Feel free to add more cream, butter, or milk, a tablespoon at a time a for more creamy texture.Season with salt and pepper.
If you are using a ricer or mill, do not mix with a hand mixer. Instead use a rubber spatula to stir in the butter and cream. You can also use a metal mesh colander for the same results as a ricer as pictured above.
