- 5 lb bag of russet or Idaho potatoes
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1 c. heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 c. half and half
- 1 T. salt
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 T onion powder
- Peel, cube and rinse potatoes. Add potatoes to a 6 qt stock pot and add cold water to cover about 2 inches over the cubed potatoes. Cook until done. Potatoes will be tender and fall apart. Pour boiled potatoes into a colander. Drain. After potatoes are drained put into a large mixing bowl. Add softened butter and mix into potatoes. Whip potatoes using a hand mixer or potato masher. Add salt, pepper and onion power. Add HWC and half and half in 1/2 c. increments. Once you are close to having enough liquid, add additional liquid needed in smaller amounts so you don’t add too much liquid. Taste potatoes and adjust seasonings.
