Any good meal, needs at least one stand-out side dish.  It doesn’t need to be fancy, or have lots of ingredients, it simply needs to taste good and compliment what it’s served with.  That is definitely the case with these Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.  Not only do they taste wonderful, they are perfectly complimentary to whatever your serving with them – beef, seafood, turkey, chicken or pork.

Here’s a quick-reference grocery list of the ingredients you’ll need to make these Parmesan Mashed Potatoes:

  • Russet Potatoes – or your preferred potato variety
  • Cream Cheese
  • Butter
  • Sour Cream
  • Half and Half
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper

How This Mashed Potato Recipe Comes Together:

These potatoes have a fantastic texture.  Perfectly creamy, but not over processed or gluey.  The butter, sour cream, cream cheese and half-and-half serve to make these potatoes wonderful.  Salt and pepper added to your taste preference is all the seasoning you need.  The last ingredient is some shredded Parmesan cheese I typically stir in about a 1/2 cup and then top the potatoes with another sprinkling just before serving.  It not only tastes amazing, but looks really pretty as well!

Cooking the Potatoes:

It takes a bit of time to boil the potatoes – don’t rush this process, as you’ll just end up with lumpy potatoes.  When peeling and cutting the potatoes, cut into smaller 1/2″ slices, that way they won’t take as long to cook all the way through.  You’ll know they’re done when they are tender when pierced with a fork or knife.

Mixing in the Creaminess to this Mashed Potato Recipe:

Once the potatoes are completely cooked, drain off the water and place them back into the pot. Then add the cream cheese, butter, sour cream, half and half and Parmesan. Because the potatoes are still hot from boiling, everything will melt together beautifully.  However, if you need a little heat, turn stove top on the lowest heat. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat when all the ingredients come together. Place in a serving dish and serve right away while warm.
