  • 3 lbs russet or Idaho potatoes washed well but not peeled
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream warmed in the microwave
  • Coarse salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • 1/2 cup chopped green scallions
  • Drizzle of organic olive oil


  • Cut the potatoes into halves, this will help the potatoes boil quicker.
  • Place the washed potatoes into a large pot and cover with water.
  • Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 30 - 40 minutes. To check if the potatoes are done, insert a knife or a fork into the center, the potatoes should be soft but not falling apart.
  • Once done, drain the water, place the pot over low heat and add the butter and half of the warm cream to the pot. Using a wire masher, mash the potatoes until almost smooth, leaving some chunks.
  • Add the rest of the warm cream little by little, and stir. Season with salt and pepper, taste and adjust.
  • If you want the potatoes creamier, stir in a little more warm cream.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl, top with freshly chopped green scallions and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Enjoy!
