Pioneer Woman Creamy Mashed Potatoes


Mashed potatoes are a timeless classic in the world of comfort food. Creamy, rich, and incredibly versatile, they make the perfect side dish for almost any meal. If you're in search of the ultimate mashed potatoes recipe, the Pioneer Woman's Creamy Mashed Potatoes are a delightful option. Known for her comforting and delicious dishes, Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, has created a recipe that promises a cloud-like, velvety texture and a buttery taste that will leave you craving more. Join me on a culinary journey as I try out this renowned recipe.


For this recipe, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 5 lb. russet or Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3/4 c. butter, plus more for topping
  • 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. black pepper


  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into pieces that are generally the same size. Bring a large pot of water to a simmer and add the potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook for 30 to 35 minutes. When they're cooked through, a fork should easily slide into the potatoes with no resistance, and the potatoes should almost, but not totally, fall apart.
  2. Drain the potatoes in a large colander. When the potatoes have finished draining, place them back into the dry pot and put the pot on the stove. Mash the potatoes over low heat, allowing all the steam to escape, before adding in all the other ingredients.
  3. Turn off the stove and add the butter, cream cheese, and about 1/2 cup of half-and-half. Mash, mash, mash! Next, add about 1/2 teaspoon of Lawry's Seasoning Salt and 1/2 a teaspoon of black pepper.
  4. Stir well, and place in a medium-sized baking dish. Throw a few pats of butter over the top of the potatoes and place them in a 350ºF oven to heat until the butter is melted and the potatoes are warmed through.
  5. Tip: When making this dish a day or two in advance, take it out of the fridge about 2 to 3 hours before serving time. Bake in a 350ºF oven for about 20 to 30 minutes or until warmed through.
