Cream Cheese Is The Key To Lush Mashed Potatoes
Mashed potatoes are a simple and comforting dish, and adding cream cheese creates a novel, tangy cheesiness while enriching mashed potatoes' consistency to the fluffiest heights.
All you have to do is throw in a block of cream cheese with your mashed potato recipe. Use an 8-ounce block of softened cream cheese per 5 pounds of potatoes.
Simply add the cream cheese with the butter and milk to steamed and mashed potatoes, then use a potato masher to mix the ingredients.
Season your mashed potatoes with salt and pepper and, for a kick, garlic powder or paprika. Rosemary, roasted garlic, and parmesan cheese all make great additions.
You can also use flavored cream cheese varieties, like garlic and herb, chive and onion, jalepeño, and even pineapple cream cheese for a mashed sweet potato casserole.
