Calories: 275kcal


  • Potato Masher


  • 10 medium sized yellow potatoes
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese, softened
  • each salt and pepper


  • Peel potatoes, rinse and chop into 1 inch pieces
  • Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with cold water. Add some salt to the water and bring to a boil. Cook until fork tender, about 30 minutes. Turn burner off.
  • Drain the potatoes, and return them to the pot. Place pot back on burner (heat is still off) and shake while the residual heat dries the potatoes slightly for 2 minutes.
  • Mash the potatoes with a potato masher and add the heavy cream through cream cheese. Continue mashing and mixing until combined.
  • Taste for seasonings and add salt and pepper. At this point I might add a little more butter.
  • Scoop into serving dish and serve warm with a few dots of butter on top.
