Amy Jean’s Kitchen: Stovetop Mashed Potatoes (Pioneer Woman: Dinnertime)

I LOVE potatoes in any form so I am always on the hunt for a

good recipe involving them. These stovetop mashed potatoes

from the Pioneer Woman are honestly some of the best mashed

potatoes I have ever had. They are smooth, creamy, and taste

amazing. Definitely a great recipe to use for any dinner.




2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled or unpeeled

and scrubbed clean (your preference)

1 cup whole milk

½ cup (1 stick) butter

¼ cup heavy cream, more to taste

Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

4 ounces cream cheese



1.) Cut the potatoes into wedges. In a pot or large saucepan, boil

them in water over medium-high heat until fork-tender, about 25

minutes. Pour them into a colander to drain them, then set aside.


2.) Return the same pot to the stovetop over medium heat and

add the milk, butter, cream, and salt and pepper to taste.


3.) Stir to heat the milk mixture and melt the butter, then add

the cream cheese and stir as it melts. 


4.) When the mixture is melted and creamy, throw in the

potatoes and turn off the heat.


5.) Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes until they’re

totally smooth. Put the lid on the pan and keep warm, splashing

in a couple tablespoons of cream if you need to reheat them.
