Author Notes: This recipe, also part of my Cuban Cooking project is hands-down the best mashed potato recipe I have made - ever. It has four ingredients and doubles and triples with ease. I served it this past Thanksgiving and my guests couldn't pin-point what it was made with. Kept them coming back for more.christinagp

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces cream cheese

Directions

  1. Boil the potatoes until they become soft and start forming a puree.
  2. Strain the potatoes, but be careful to leave the puree that has begun to form in the pot and return the potatoes to the same pot.
  3. Soften butter in a microwave, only for 15 seconds.
  4. Add the salt, cream cheese and butter to the potatoes.
  5. Mash by hand until soft and creamy, leaving lumps, if desired.
