    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a creamy and most delicious smashed potato recipe! I leave the skins on for even extra flavor for this recipe, but you can peel the potatoes if you wish, I also add in roasted garlic that I keep frozen in my freezer, so good! This also makes a great topping for Shepherd's pie, russets only for this!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 large russet potatoes, quartered
    • 1/2 cup butter (no subs!)
    • 2 -4 tablespoons sour cream
    • 1/4 cup whipped cream (or use 18% table cream)
    • green onion, finely chopped (optional, use any amount desired)
    • salt and pepper (lots of pepper!)


    1. 1
      Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for about 13-15 minutes or until just fork-tender (do not over cook the potatoes or your smashed potato mixture will be very soft, cook only until fork-tender!) drain well and place in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      While the potatoes are still hot add in butter and lightly mash.
    3. 3
      Add in the sour cream and whipping cream; mash but leave chunks in the potato mixture.
    4. 4
      Add in the chopped green onions (if using) mix to combine.
    5. 5
      Season with salt and lots of pepper to taste.

      These potatoes are outstanding! I used Yukon Gold potatoes and left the skins on - it was delicious with them on. I used 2 T sour cream and all of the whipped cream. I found that I didn't really need to add much more salt, but I added lots of pepper. I served these with "Strapped Budget Salisbury Steak" but these potatoes are too good to cover up with gravy. Thanks for posting!
