Perfect Cream Cheese Dill Mashed Potatoes

Cream Cheese And Dill Mashed Potatoes

I love taking a classic dish and then changing it up just a bit, like these cream cheese dill mashed potatoes. It helps to keep things interesting and transforms boring dishes into new and exciting ones. The dill really adds a lot of freshness to a dish that is normally very cream heavy and starchy. The cream cheese gives this dish some zest and adds to the overall creaminess.

Yuli isn’t the only one who has a “secret ingredient” when it comes to mashed potatoes. My secret ingredient to making these cream cheese dill mashed potatoes is using Yukon Gold potatoes. I never realized what a huge difference it would make in flavor if I switched out the russets for the yukon potato. But once I did, I never went back! If you’re ready to change things up a bit, give these potatoes a try this Thanksgiving!

Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once potatoes boil, remove lid, add 1.5 tablespoons kosher salt, and allow to simmer for approximately 15 minutes until you can easily slide a knife into potatoes easily and it falls apart. Remove from heat and drain water.
Place back on still warm stove (make sure burner is off) and add in sliced butter, sliced cream cheese, cream, and sour cream. Cover with lid and allow to stand for 2 minutes.

Mash with a potato masher until no lumps remain. If potatoes don’t feel silky enough, add 1-2 tablespoons more cream. Finally add in dill and give it a final stir before serving while still warm.

    oh adding cream cheese to the mash potato makes it so delicious.
    I remember, my parents always added sour cream to mashed potato… Somehow i stopped adding sour cream to my mash…

      Absolutely! I love the added creaminess and a little but of tartness that the cream cheese and sour cream add. You should try making them this way again!
