  • 8 russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Heat oven to 300° F. Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough cold water to cover them by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well, return to pot, and mash. Add 8 tablespoons of the butter, the cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a casserole and dot with the remaining butter, cut into small pieces. Place in oven, uncovered, to keep warm for up to 1 hour.

    In Advance: For a crisp, golden crust on the potatoes, increase the oven temperature to 400° F for the last 15 minutes.
