Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and chopped into 1" chunks
  • 4 garlic cloves smashed, peeled, and cut in half width-wise
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened, plus more for serving
  • ½ cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions 

  • Place the potatoes and garlic cloves in a large pot. Fill with water up to 2" over the potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once boiling, remove the lid, and reduce the heat slightly. Boil for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain in a colander.
  • Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Add the softened cream cheese, butter, milk and salt and pepper, to taste. Mash with a potato masher or beat with a hand held mixer until they reach the desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
  • Serve warm with chives and additional butter, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  • For richer mashed potatoes, substitute half and half or heavy whipping cream for the milk.
