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.
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.
