Serve this creamy side dish with our Turkey Meatloaf Muffins for a delicious meal for the whole family that kids will really enjoy.
Place potatoes and carrots in a small stockpot with enough cold water to cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, and return to pot; place over low heat to dry out, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove pot from heat. Pour half-and-half over vegetables, and add butter; roughly mash with a wooden spoon or potato masher. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
