directions

  • Peel, and roughly chop potatoes into equal sized chunks.
  • Place potatoes in a pot and add water to cover. Add a few dashes of salt.
  • Bring potatoes to a boil until easily pierced with a fork, approximately 10 minutes depending on the size of your chunks.
  • Drain cooking water from the potatoes and place them in a large bowl. Cover them with a cloth dishtowel to further absorb moisture.
  • Combine the butter and cream in a saucepan over medium high heat. Scald the cream mixture just until steaming (do not boil).
  • Remove the dishtowel and pour 1/2 the hot cream mixture into the bowl with the potatoes.
  • Using a potato masher or a hand mixer, mash and blend the potatoes and cream until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add the rest of the hot cream as desired and mix for creamier potatoes.

    Awesome! Everyone in my family ate and liked these - even the two who had decided that they only liked mashed potatoes from flakes. The gold potatoes have a nice flavor - I had only used Idahos for "real mashed potatoes" in the past. I used about 1/2 cup rice milk with 4 tbsp. of Smart Balance butter substitute as I have a 3 year old who seems to have a problem with dairy products.

    Excellent! I had these with chicken breasts and rice. They were warm and creamy and easy to make!! These are way better than those add milk to powder mashed potatoes. I did add a bit of pepper just to give it that extra pop. :-D Definitely will make these again.
