Velvety Mashed Potatoes Recipe: Make Enough of This Smooth Mashed Potato Recipe So No One Fights Over It

Better have enough of this creamy, velvety, smooth mashed potato recipe so everyone can have seconds – or there may be a family feud on Thanksgiving! The olive oil adds even more creaminess and richness, but adding it is up to you. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 6 large Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (optional)
  • fresh herbs, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain well. 
  2. Put the potatoes through a ricer or food mill into a large bowl. 
  3. Put the cream and butter into a saucepot. Heat until just warm and melted together. Slowly start adding the cream into the potatoes, allowing it to absorb. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until smooth. 
  4. If desired, stir in the olive oil before serving for even more richness.
