  • 8 potatoes medium size
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper to taste


  • Gather your ingredients... You'll need yellow potatoes, salted butter, heavy whipping cream, salt, and pepper.
  • Wash, peel, and chop the potatoes.
  • Cook the potatoes until they're soft enough to easily jab with a fork. We usually cook ours by boiling them on the stove in a large saucepan for about 30 minutes, but sometimes we use our Instant Pot.
  • Drain the water off your boiled potatoes, leaving your potatoes in the saucepan.
  • Add the butter and heavy whipping cream to the potatoes.
  • Use a hand mixer to whip the potatoes, adding salt and pepper to taste. You can also use a potato masher if you don't have a hand mixer; your potatoes may just be a little bit chunky.
  • Once they're all whipped up, they're ready to serve.
