Rich and Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


4 servings

These mashed potatoes are especially rich, thanks to the whipping cream. The pretty red potato skins peeking through the creamy mashed potatoes will draw comments.


  • 6 medium unpeeled red potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, warmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain. Mash potatoes with the cream, butter, salt and pepper.
Editor's Note: For a smoother consistency, peel potatoes before cooking.
