4. In large saucepan, add heavy whipping cream, butter, salt to potatoes. Smash with meat smasher or fork until light and fluffy. Add salt and pepper to taste.

We enjoy some skin on our potatoes, so we only peel the brown potatoes and keep the red potatoes skin on. Feel free to peel the potatoes however you desire.
