Gram's Creamy Mashed Potatoes
These ultra creamy potatoes are chunk free and are the perfect side dish to any occasion! Gram's creamy mashed potatoes are whipped until fluffy and are full of cream cheese, sour cream, and butter to make them even more decadent!
Servings: 6 people
- 6-8 whole russet potatoes
- 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese softened
- 1 (8 oz) container Sour cream
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- salt and pepper to taste
- Paprika for topping
Clean, peel and quarter potatoes. Make sure to remove any eyes or bruises.
Place in a large bowl and cover potatoes with water.
Cover with paper towel and cook in the microwave for 30 minutes.
Whip potatoes in your stand mixture using the whisk attachment until fluffy and no chunks remain. Whip in cream cheese, sour cream, and butter.
Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam and put potato mixture in.
Top generously with paprika.
Store in the fridge covered in saran wrap overnight or preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook for 30 minutes.
If you're going to make these ahead of time (which I would definitely suggest!) I would advise taking them out of the fridge about an hour before you want to bake them to allow them to come to room temperature, so no extra baking time will be required!
Vegan? A reader said they had success with using vegan butter, cream cheese, and sour cream! I can't personally vouch for the results, but I'm sure it'd be wonderful! :)
