Whip up these incredibly creamy, smooth mashed potatoes, perfect to accompany just about any meal.
5 lb(s) russet or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and rinsed
1 ½ sticks regular salted butter, plus more for dotting
8 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ cup or so half-and-half
A splash heavy cream
Salt and black pepper
3 - 5 heads roasted garlic
1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
2. Dice the potatoes and boil in a pot of water until fork tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and return to the pan over low heat. Mash the potatoes for 5 minutes to allow a lot of the steam to escape.
3. Add the butter, cream cheese, half-and-half, cream, some salt, pepper and roasted garlic. Stir/mash to combine. Test and adjust the seasonings.
4. Spread the potatoes into a large buttered baking dish. Dot the top with butter. Bake until heated through, about 30 minutes.
Potatoes can be made 1 day ahead of time and baked the next day.
