  • 4-5 pounds potatoes
  • 2 large cloves garlic or more, minced
  • fine sea salt
  • 6 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup whole milk or oat milk
  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • chopped fresh chives or green onions for garnish
  • freshly-cracked black pepper for garnish


  • Cut the potatoes into chunks and transfer them to a large pot with cold water. Feel free to leave the skins on for extra nutrition. Stir in the garlic, salt, and pepper. Boil the potatoes until a knife inserted in the middle of the potato goes in easily.
  • Meanwhile, as the potatoes are boiling, in a medium saucepan heat the butter, milk, and an additional 2 teaspoons of salt until butter is melted. Don’t boil the milk! Set aside until ready to use.
  • After potatoes are boiled, drain the water and return the pot to the stove and turn the heat to low. Pan-dry the potatoes.
  • Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or electric hand mixer until desired consistency.
  • Next, slowly stir in the melted butter mixture over the potatoes until potatoes have soaked up all the liquid. Fold in the cream cheese, and gently stir again until well combined.
  • Add more seasoning to taste if needed.
  • Garnish with freshly sliced green onions, pepper, some gravy, and serve hot with more butter on top.
