5 pounds russet or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and rinsed

1 1/2 sticks regular salted butter, plus more for dotting

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup or so half-and-half

A splash heavy cream

Salt and black pepper

3 to 5 heads roasted garlic


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Dice the potatoes and boil in a pot of water until fork tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and return to the pan over low heat. Mash the potatoes for 5 minutes to allow a lot of the steam to escape.
  3. Add the butter, cream cheese, half-and-half, cream, some salt, pepper and roasted garlic. Stir/mash to combine. Test and adjust the seasonings.
  4. Spread the potatoes into a large buttered baking dish. Dot the top with butter. Bake until heated through, about 30 minutes.
