The sky is the limit when it comes to preparing potatoes: roasted, baked, fried, stuffed. However, nothing can beat mashed potatoes. They are the ultimate creamiest, richest comfort food that never fails us.

This year, we all deserve a little bit of extra pampering, so why not take our beloved classic side up a notch by adding cream cheese? It helps make the mashed potatoes perfectly creamy, super silky, and luscious, turning them into the most satisfying, sinful-in-all-the-right-ways potato dish you’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. Are you ready? Let’s cook!

Steps

1
Done

Thoroughly wash and peel potatoes and chop them into 1-inch pieces. Place them in a large pot and cover with water.

2
Done

Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat and cook until tender.

3
Done

Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, milk, four tablespoons of butter, kosher salt, and thyme in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisking continually, melt the cream cheese and butter. Remove from the heat.

4
Done

Drain the potatoes, return to the pot, and mash with a potato masher until uniform.

5
Done

Discard the thyme sprigs in the milk mixture. Pour the milk mixture over the potatoes and stir to combine.

6
Done

Transfer to a serving bowl. Top with the remaining butter and garnish with black pepper, scallions, or fresh thyme leaves.

Aren't these the absolute best, easy-to-make, mashed potatoes? Enjoy this ultra decadent side dish, and be sure to share your feedback with us.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

Have you ever heard of second life (sl for short). It is essentially a game where you can do anything you want. Second life is literally my second life (pun intended lol). If you would like to see more you can see these sl articles and blogs

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I feel I might never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely large for me. I’m looking forward on your next submit, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!

I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?
