Classic Mashed Potatoes

This is a classic recipe for mashed potatoes. Yukon Gold potatoes provide a great creamy, buttery flavor that is the perfect potato for this recipe.


6 medium Yukon Gold potatoes peeled cut some potatoes so that they all are roughly the same size (cut in half or quarters to decrease cooking time)
1/3 cup of heavy cream
¼ cup of butter
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


In a large pot, fill with water half way up. Add potatoes with lid tilted and boil on high heat for about 45 minutes or until tender. Drain all of the water and set aside for a few minutes to make sure all water has evaporated.  Add cream and butter and mash to desired smoothness. Add salt and pepper to taste and mash or stir to incorporate.
