Ingredients

6
russett potatoes, chopped for boiling
4 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
milk
1/3 c
cream cheese
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
This is pretty simple guys. Chop potatoes and place in water.
2
Bring to a boil and cook until easy to poke through with a fork, then drain.
3
In a large bowl, place potatoes, cream cheese and 1/2 the butter.
4
begin to smash or mix, slowly adding milk until you get the desired consistency. (I prefer to use a mixer for a creamier texture)
5
Add rest of butter and salt to taste.
6
Optional fun tips: You can make garlic mashed potatoes by adding some minced fresh garlic to the butter and simmer for a little bit before you add it to the potatoes. Just be careful not to burn it!

You can also add some dried or fresh chives, bacon, and shredded cheese for a loaded baked potato.
