It's not difficult to make this classic side dish. For our mashed potato recipe, all you need is four ingredients: Yukon gold potatoes, milk, butter, and—our secret ingredient—cream cheese, which adds richness and tang. Warming the milk and butter before adding them to the cooked poatoes is key.

  • Over medium heat, stir potatoes until dry (a film of starch will form on bottom of pan), about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring milk and butter to a simmer; pour over potatoes. Add cream cheese; season generously with salt. Mash just until smooth, being careful not to overmash.
