Servings 10 People, as a side
- 4 Lbs Purple Potatoes, cut into quarters or halves if they are small potatoes
- 2 tsp Salt + more to taste
- 4 Tbsp Butter
- 1/2 Cup Full-fat cream cheese
- 1 3/4-2 Cups 2% Milk or almond milk
Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water so the potatoes are covered about 1 inch. Add the salt into the pot and stir.
Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat slightly and cook until the potatoes are very easily pierced with a fork - about 20-25 mins.
Once cooked, drain the water and mash the potatoes well with a potato masher or a potato ricer. I strongly recommend a ricer otherwise it's very easy to overwork the potatoes.
Melt the butter and cream cheese in a small pan on medium heat (the cream cheese won't fully melt) adding the milk as well so it heats up. I recommend starting with 1 3/4 cup milk then if you want/need more, heat it up before adding
Once the butter is melted, stir the butter, cream cheese and milk mixture into the potatoes until fluffy.
Season to taste with salt (I like 2-3 tsp) and DEVOUR!
