Cream cheese mashed potatoes are so delicious you’ll never make them any other way again.  Loaded with a three cheese blend and a tasty blend of herbs and seasoning, these mashed potatoes are the perfect compliment to any dinner recipe.

I love serving these mashed potatoes made with cream cheese with several of my favorite dishes.  These potatoes pair well with my famous Fall Off The Bone Ribs, a Pepperoncini Pot Roast or this easy Meatloaf Recipe.

Mashed Potatoes With Cream Cheese

My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy and we probably have mashed potatoes with our dinner at least once a week. My sister-in-law shared this recipe with my family years ago and it is fabulous!   I had never made mashed potatoes with cream cheese before but I don’t think I’ll make them any other way again.  If you’re looking for a creamy, flavorful mashed potato recipe that is super simple to throw together, you should definitely give this one a try!

How To Make Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes

  1. Wash and then cut the red potatoes into quarters
  2. Bring the the potatoes to a boil in a large pot of water on the stove
  3. Turn the heat down to a simmer and then simmer until they are tender, which will take about 10-20 minutes
  4. Drain the water and return the potatoes to the pot
  5. Place the pot on medium heat for about a minute to dry out the potatoes
  6. Remove the pot of potatoes from the stove
  7. Add the garlic, ricotta cheese, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese to the cooking pot
  8. Mash the potatoes to your desired texture and stir until the ingredients are fully mixed
  9. Add salt & pepper to your liking and then give the potatoes another good mix
  10. Garnish with green onions or fresh rosemary, optional

Tips For Making Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes

  • If you don’t like ricotta or Parmesan cheese for any recipe, simply substitute them with more cream cheese.  For each cheese you remove from the recipe, add an additional 2 ounces of cream cheese to the mix.
  • After you bring the pot to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer.  By simmering the potatoes it will help keep them from being too mushy and falling apart.
