How to Prepare Buttery and Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Start off by peeling the potatoes then cut them into smaller sizes. Next, rinse the potatoes to remove starch.

Place your potatoes in a cooking pot, and add water until it covers the potatoes. Season the water using chicken bouillon and salt. Cover it and allow it to boil until the potatoes are tender.

Drain the hot water out and set it aside. In a separate pan, pour heavy cream into it, add Rosemary and Thyme to the heavy cream and let it simmer. Remember to cover the pan to allow the flavor to stay in the heavy cream—give it a little stir here and there.

Strain the Rosemary and Thyme from the heavy cream and get ready to mash the potatoes. Use a hand mixer to mash the potatoes together. You can use a potato masher if you have one. Add butter to the mashed potatoes, then keep adding the heavy cream gradually as you mash.

Season the mashed potatoes with garlic powder, salt, and pepper and give it another mix. You can add some melted butter on top with a little bit of dry parsley just to garnish.
