Mashed Potatoes



  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Place the peeled and cut potatoes into a medium saucepan. Cover with cold water. Add a half teaspoon of salt to the water. Over high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low to maintain a simmer, and for 15 to 20 minutes, or until are fork tender.
  2. Melt the butter and warm the cream in the microwave.
  3. Drain the water from potatoes, leaving potatoes in pan. Pour the heated cream and melted butter over the potatoes. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher, mashing until the potatoes are smooth. Don’t over-beat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
