Mashed potatoes in my opinion, are the quintessential comfort food. This recipe adds a new "twist" to regular mashed potatoes. In this recipe, we used Cherchies Lem 'n Dill Seasoning to add a nice zing to the potatoes. Another option would be to experiment with some of our other spices. Garlic Potatoes, made with our Cherchies Garlic Seasoning or Garlic 'n Herbs No-Salt Seasoning would be a refreshing substitution. For those who like to "spice things up", our Select Grilling Rub and Seasoning would make the perfect compliment to a Tex-Mex dish.
- 8-10 Gold potatoes, peeled and cut in half
- 10 cups of water, or enough to cover potatoes
- 1-2 teaspoons (tsp) salt
- 3 Tablespoons (Tbsp.) Butter
- 4 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature
- 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp), or more to taste Cherchies Lem 'n Dill Seasoning
- 1/3 cup 1/2 and 1/2 (add more or less for desired consistency)
In a large pot, boil potatoes in water with 1-2 teaspoons of salt, until potatoes are fork tender (this means they seem tender when you put a fork into them). Drain potatoes, and while potatoes are still hot, add butter and Lem 'n Dill seasoning (or if you were really organized, you could dip into your premade Cherchies Herbed Butter Recipe). This can either be done right in the pan or in a large bowl.
Add 1/2 and 1/2 (more or less depending on taste...everyone has his or her own consistency preference), and cream cheese. Mix with a mixer until potatoes are light and fluffy.
My mouth is watering...Grab a spoon. Enjoy!
