Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Add the potatoes to a large saucepan and cover with cold water by at least 1 inch. Add the salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, partially covered, until the potatoes are very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and return the potatoes to the pan.

  • Break up the potatoes with a potato masher or a handheld mixer on low speed. Gradually add Country Crock® Spread and beat until incorporated. Gradually add the cream cheese, and sour cream, beating well after each addition.

  • Gradually stir in the warm half-and-half, 2 tablespoons at a time, until well incorporated and the potatoes are fluffy and light (you may not need all the half-and-half). Stir in the thyme and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with remaining tablespoon Country Crock® Spread.

Cook's Notes:

For a cheesier version of mashed potatoes, stir in 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese.

Use milk instead of half and half, if preferred.

These mashed potatoes are just as creamy as the title implies. They are deliciously smooth and creamy and the additional ingredients are well balanced and do not overpower the potatoes. Everyone loved this dish. Read More

Perfection! I tend to be challenged when it comes to mashed potatoes but these turned out perfect as written. They were creamy and had the prefect consistency. I wasn't sure I'd like the thyme but it was perfect too. Country Crock was the only "butter" I knew growing up and now I know why. I am from Kansas City and mama knows best! This will be my go to recipe for mashed potatoes from now and I thank you Martina and Country Crock! Read More

These mashed potatoes are so good! We loved the tanginess from the cream cheese and sour cream. I used low-fat sour cream and cream cheese plus almond milk in place of the half-and-half. I also cut down the Country Crock spread to 3 tablespoons and subbed green onions for the fresh thyme. Would 100% make again. Read More

Absolutely delicious potatoes. Really decadent, creamy, and wonderfully seasoned. I used red potatoes and peeled only half of them. I also used dried thyme. My husband went back for seconds they were just that good. Thank you for a great recipe I'll definitely repeat....especially for company! Read More
