We made these 30 Minute Whipped Potatoes to go with Pork Chops and Apples with Cider Glaze– the entire family loved them. They are DELICIOUS, dreamy, creamy, whipped to perfection and they are the easiest version of mashed potatoes ever. These potatoes are a true home crafted recipe from LaughingSpatula and I guarantee that you will LOVE THEM.
How to make perfect Whipped Potatoes
To start, peel and cut 4 large russet potatoes into approximately 1 1/2 inch vertical slices. This makes roughly 4-6 servings, so if you are making this for a large crowd for Thanksgiving or another big family get together, keep that in mind and double it if needed. Cutting the potatoes into vertical slices allows them to cook faster, and more evenly.
Boil them in salted water until they can be poked easily with a fork, and are soft enough to break in half. Drain, and add them to a stand mixer (or a bowl with a hand mixer will work as well). Mix on medium for 2 minutes, with the butter.
Once the potatoes are whipped for 2 minutes on medium, they should be a mostly even consistency. Next, we’ll add heavy whipping cream, and sour cream.
This is the final stage of mixing before we add to our pan- make sure to scrape the sides to ensure all potato-ey goodness is incorporated. Once fully mixed, pour potatoes into casserole dish.
See the consistency of these ‘taters? They are divine. Creamy, rich, delicious, and they are SO easy. I top mine with melted butter and parsley, but they are just as simple and delicious on their own without anything added.

What can I do to lighten up these whipped mashed potatoes?
- Well, these are an indulging side dish, but you could certainly lighten them up by using low fat greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and cutting the amount of butter in half. You could also use low fat milk instead of heavy whipping cream.
