Creamy Mashed Potatoes

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: Easy

When it comes to side dishes everyone in our family loves creamy mashed potatoes. They are a true comfort food that enhances chicken cutlets, flank steak, meatloaf & so much more. On occasion, we make Roasted Garlic Mashed potatoes that are also delicious if you want to step it up a notch. Either way, these mashed potatoes are so creamy and buttery our mouths are watering just writing about them! Enjoy them plain, garnished with some fresh chopped chives or gravy. 😋 😋


  • 2lbs Yukon gold potatoes,  peeled then cut in half and cut in quarters
  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher salt for water
  • 3/4 – 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan filled with water to generously cover the potatoes. Add  1 Tablespoon kosher salt.
  2. Bring to a full boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook potatoes until fork-tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat & drain well. Place potatoes back into saucepan & return to low heat. Stir potatoes constantly for about 1-2 minutes to dehydrate the potatoes.
  4. Remove potatoes from the heat. Add the butter. Using a handheld masher, mash the butter into the potatoes. Add enough cream & continue mashing until the desired texture is achieved.
  5. Add salt & pepper to taste then mash to combine.
