Creamy Mashed Potatoes

  • Rating:


6 large red potatoes
2/3 cup light cream
1/2 stick butter
3 tbsp cream cheese
salt & pepper to taste
1 stalk green onion, washed well; chop and discard roots


Step 1: Fill a deep pot of water and get it boiling. In the meantime, scrub the red potatoes clean, quarter them and set aside. Chop the green onion into small rings and set aside. When the water is boiling, drop the potatoes right in and cook them until a fork easily goes through with no resistance. Drain the water when the potatoes are done and get to mashing.

Step 2: Mash the potatoes with a masher, or if you’re a poor college student like me, a fork. I like my potatoes with a bit of a texture so I leave in a few chunks. While the potatoes are still piping hot, add the cream cheese, butter, cream, salt, and pepper. Mix, mix, mix & taste, taste, taste. Then feel real good that you did your workout that morning. Add the green onion last and fold them in. Serve!
