Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes are elegantly fluffy, delightfully creamy, and all around great side dish! Enjoy with Braised Pork and Ruby Choucroute or delicious New York Strip Roast

  • Yields: about 5 cups


3 pounds russet potatoes (about 6-cups diced)

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1/2 package (8-oz) cream cheese, softened

1 stick butter, softened

1/2 cup half n half (more or less as needed)


Peel potatoes, cut into chunks and place in saucepan. Add water until it is visible around potatoes in the pan, but not covering potatoes; salt to taste (1-2 teaspoons). Cover pan and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and gently boil until potatoes are fork tender (about 20 minutes).
