How to Make Creamy Mashed Potatoes


  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.
