These are the mashed potatoes that we had at Christmas dinner. If I may say so myself, I do think that these are the world’s best mashed potatoes. It is a simple recipe: 5 Lbs Russet/Golden potatoes, 8 oz cream cheese and 2 sticks of butter.
I won’t bore anyone with the instructions on how to actually make the mashed potatoes as that should be just one of the most basic elements of kitchen knowledge.
I once made this recipe with an extra 2 sticks of butter. Decadently rich!!!!!!!
The greatest culinary affront in the history of food has to be any type of processed potato flakes. AKA —– Old Country Buffet “mashed potatoes” BLECH!!!!
The first rule ofgreat mashed potatoes is……….. Not only is it OK to have lumps, it is better !!!!!
