Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • 4 oz Cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • teaspoon Pepper
  • ½ cup Half and Half
  • Optional Milk as needed for desired texture

Instructions
 

  • Start by washing, peeling, and dicing potatoes. Place them in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and allow them to cook until tender. Once tender drain water out and then return to stove top on low heat.
  • Add cream cheese and butter and use a potato masher to mash potatoes. Add in salt and pepper (add more or less to taste) and mix. 
  • Add half and half and mashed again. Use a hand mixer to get really creamy potato texture. Add more milk as needed for a thinner texture. 
    Optional: I garnished with parsley for picture purposes.

Notes

  • Tip: It is essential to lower the heat. If you keep your potatoes at a boil the high heat will ruin them and they will become very watery.
