Start to Finish: 30 min

Serves 5

Ingredients
2 large russet potatoes, peel and cubed
8 small red potatoes, cubed
1/3 cup whipping cream
2 Tbs butter
1/2 tsp salt
Dash of pepper

Directions
1. In large sauce pan, fill 2/3 with water, bring to boil.
2. While water is heating; clean, peel and cut potatoes into cubes. Add a dash of salt and potatoes to boiling water.

3. Cook for 15 min on high or until fork is able to enter and exit potatoes easily. Drain well.
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.

Be sure to add potatoes to boiling water to prevent potatoes from becoming soggy. For a creamier consistency add additional whipping cream and butter.

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.
