"This is the perfect recipe for mashed potatoes. The proportions of ingredients are exactly right. You can use whipping cream or half & half - either way is delicious! You can use white pepper rather than black pepper if you prefer." -peaches09

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring potatoes and cold water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch oven; boil 25 minutes or until tender. Drain; peel, if desired.

Step 2

Beat potatoes at low speed with an electric mixer just until mashed. Add 1/4 cup butter, salt, and pepper, beating until butter is melted. Gradually add cream, beating just until smooth. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.

Step 3

*Red or russet potatoes may be substituted.

Not very light but so very good. I typically go for roasted potatoes, but my hubby loves mashed. This is a great recipe when you want to splurge.
