"Pioneer Woman's Creamy Mashed Potatoes: A Homestyle Delight"
Few dishes embody the essence of comfort food quite like creamy mashed potatoes. The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, has mastered the art of transforming this humble side dish into a culinary delight that epitomizes home-cooked goodness. Her recipe for Creamy Mashed Potatoes stands as a testament to simplicity and flavor, offering a heavenly blend of buttery richness and fluffy perfection.


  • 5 lb. russet or Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3/4 c. butter, plus more for topping
  • 1 (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 Seasoned Salt and 1/2 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 into a 350ºF oven to heat until the butter is melted and the potatoes are warmed through.

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.
