Creamy mashed potatoes are a must for any Thanksgiving feast, and these spuds may just be the mashed potatoes of our dreams. 

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 35 minutes



Fill large pot with cold salted water; add potatoes, onion and garlic. Bring to boil over medium-high heat; cook until potatoes are falling apart, about 15 minutes. Drain. Return potato mixture to pot over medium-high heat; shake pot to dry potatoes, about 1 minute. Transfer to large bowl; press potato mixture through potato ricer back into pot. 

In saucepan, heat cream, milk, butter, salt and pepper over medium heat until hot and butter is melted. Stir into potato mixture. Stir in green onions and parsley. Transfer to serving dish and top with butter (if using). 

Test Kitchen Tip: Using a ricer is a pro­fessional cook’s trick to the fluffiest mashed potatoes. It’s a lifesaver during any holiday gathering.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.
