Cream Cheese Smashed Potatoes

I love making smashed potatoes, and I always make this recipe instead of traditional mashed potatoes. First, they’re just delicious. And second, they are just so simple to make. No peeling the potatoes. No whipping or having to get the potatoes smooth. Chunky is good 🙂

  • 2 ½ lbs red potatoes cut into large chunks
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 8 oz veggie cream cheese such as Philadelphia Garden Vegetable
  • 1 Tbsp chives or scallions chopped
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 pinch fresh cracked pepper


  • Put the cut potatoes into a pot and cover with cool water. Bring to a boil. Boil potatoes until tender. The time required depends on how small your potatoes are or how small you cut them up. Large red potatoes, each cut into 6 chunks will take about 10 minutes. Drain.
