I can handle a little brown here or there, but when they go very brown and mushy, I can’t eat them with a spoon like some people do.    So what to do?   You can make a banana smoothie, that sounds good.  Or you can make banana soft serve ice cream, also really good.  Or you can make these Mini and Moist Banana Muffin recipe!

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

The best creamy mashed potatoes recipe made with cream cheese.  Easy to make, no hand mixer required! This is my #1 requested dish at Thanksgiving dinner!

This is my go to, make you weak in the knees, mashed potatoes recipe.  I started making these a few years ago when I wanted to try a new mashed potatoes recipe for Thanksgiving.  Now I make them all the time for Sunday dinner (usually a pot roast) and every holiday dinner. 

The best creamy mashed potatoes recipe made with cream cheese.  Easy to make, no hand mixer required! This is my #1 requested dish at Thanksgiving dinner!

Why These Mashed Potatoes Are The Best

  • They’re made with cream cheese which makes them extra creamy. 
  • There is no hand mixer involved in these potatoes.  What?  There is no hand mixer involved in these potatoes.  Seriously.  How do they get so creamy then?  Next point..
  • You boil these potatoes for a pretty long time until they’re almost ready to fall apart.  This makes a hand mixer not necessary, as just a spoon and a potato masher makes them blended pretty quickly.
  • You can make these ahead of time, no problem.  For holidays I usually make these the night before so the actual holiday cooking is a little more relaxed.  I just throw them in the oven 30 minutes before we’re ready to eat.
