The Best Mashed Potatoes


1 bag instant potatoes (butter flavor or herb flavor works well!)
3-4 red skin potatoes, partially peeled.
1/2 package cream cheese, softened
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
2 tablespoons salted butter
1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1 cup hot water
1/2 cup creamora or other non-dairy creamer

Partially peel the red skins and chop them into large chunks. Leave some of the red skin on (I leave all but its preference).
Put in cold water and bring to a boil for about 20 mins or until soft.

Make instant potatoes in a large pot, as directed on the box with the amount of water the box calls for.

Add drained red skins to pot and begin to mash.
Add in the garlic, green onions, salt, cream cheese, and butter.
Continue to mash.

Gradually add 1/2 cup cremora to hot water, a little at a time, and stir.
It will become a creamy consistency.
Add that to the potato mixture.

Mix with a mixer until smooth-ish.

Let stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
