Must Make Mashed Potatoes
4 Large Russet Potatoes, Peeled And Cut In Half Lengthwise
½ Cup Butter
½ Cup Half-And-Half
1 4 oz. Cream Cheese Softened
Kosher Salt And Ground Black Pepper To Taste
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
Step 1 Place the potatoes into a large pot, and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain, and return the potatoes to the pot. Turn heat to high, and allow the potatoes to dry for about 30 seconds. Turn off the heat.
Step 2 Mash the potatoes with a wire potato masher twice around the pot, then add the butter and milk and cream cheese. Continue to mash until smooth and fluffy. Whisk in the salt and black pepper, garlic powder until evenly distributed, about 15 seconds. Don’t overwork or potatoes won’t stay fluffy.
