Best Mashed Potatoes Recipe - Marc  (2020)

Marc Best Mashed Potatoes!

We had this last Sunday and it was delish!! 

Marc is not an eat-to-live or live-to-eat kind of human, what he is, is a fanatical eater who therefore loves to cook. 

When I asked Marc for a recipe, he texted me back instantly. You have to know Marc and know his pride in his children is giant, and in the text I could hear him yelling ... 

"My daughter has a fantastic recipe for mashed potatoes. They are the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had. Is that good? Or is there something else you would like from me?" 

I responded with "anything you want to share that you want to make this time of year … " 

He promptly sent his daughter's recipe... 

I was told that he and his daughter talk on the phone every Sunday about food....


1. Thoroughly peel and cut (potatoes) into ten roughly equal pieces.

2. Boil in salted water until they fall appart when you put a fork into them.

3. Rinse after boiling, and put back into pot.

4. Add butter, cream cheese, heavy cream and whole milk, and put the lid back on for a few minutes, allowing the butter and cream and cream cheese to melt.

5. Use a hand masher and mash everything. THEN use an electric hand mixer until they are smooth and fluffy.

6. Salt to taste
