Ingredients

  • 64 ounces 8 cups chicken stock or broth (not unsalted/low sodium)
  • 4 medium/large Russet potatoes scrubbed (not peeled) & diced into large cubes
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 - 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

STOVE TOP DIRECTIONS

  • Bring chicken stock to a boil and add cubed potatoes and garlic.  Turn down heat and cook at a low boil for about 15 - 20 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through (soft, but not crumbly).
  • Drain stock and return potatoes and garlic to the hot pot on the stove (with the stove-top turned off).
  • In a saucepan combine butter, cream cheese, and 1/2 cup heavy cream.  Heat on low until butter is melted and cream cheese is very soft. Pour into pot with potatoes.
  • Mash potatoes until you reach desired consistency.  Add additional cream if necessary.

INSTANT POT DIRECTIONS

  • Add potatoes, garlic, and stock to inner pot. Make sure liquid is above potatoes. If it is not, add additional stock or water until the potatoes are fully submerged.
  • Set to manual for 9 minutes, then carefully quick release when time is finished.
  • Strain potatoes and garlic, set aside.
  • Turn instant pot to saute mode and add butter, cream cheese, and 1/2 cup heavy cream.  Stir or whisk until butter is melted and cream cheese is very soft.
  • Turn saute off, return potatoes to pot and mash or whip until you reach desired consistency.  Add additional cream if necessary.
