TASTEFUL THURSDAY: Velvety Mashed Potatoes

Hey guys!

A couple evenings ago, I made dinner for Johnny and I. It was a simple meal of crispy chicken thighs, steamed broccoli, and mashed potatoes for him but rice for me, as I can’t eat dairy.

I wanted to make the potatoes a la Cassie, but they ended up too soft and liquidy. Johnny still approved them, so the recipe you are getting is a scaled down version to ensure they’re the thicker, but still fluffy, soft, and buttery texture you want.

If you make these, let me know!

Velvety Mashed Potatoes

Recipe serves 1


2 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp chopped onion

1 clove garlic, diced

1 large potato, peeled and cubed

1 cup chicken stock

salt and pepper to taste

3-4 Tbsp heavy cream



  1. Heat the butter over medium-high heat in medium skillet; add the onion and garlic. Cook gently for 3-5 minutes, or until onions start to turn translucent.
  2. Add potato chunks to the pan and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the chicken stock and salt and pepper; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and cover the pan just partly, so the sides still release some steam.
  4. Simmer until the potato chunks are soft and easily pricked with a fork, about 30-40 minutes.
  5. Place contents of saucepan in blender or food processor; add cream. Process until smooth, and no chunks remain. Season if needed, to taste.
  6. Serve hot with melted butter and garnished with chives.
