This recipe is built for feeding a crowd, but it can easily be down-sized for two or three people.
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
8 oz cream cheese
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk (more or less)
salt and pepper to taste
Fill the pot with enough water to cover the potatoes, and add in 2 tablespoons of butter and a teaspoon of salt. You’ll be adding more seasonings later, but I’m a firm believer in cooking with seasonings so the food is tasty inside and out. Bring the water to a boil and boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until they’re soft and the skin starts peeling off.
Drain the potatoes and put them in a mixing bowl. Start mixing them to mash them up, and add in the cream cheese and butter. Add milk until it’s a good consistency (I use buttermilk or whole milk if I have it on hand, but any milk will do). Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve it up hot!
