Creamy Herbed Mashed Potatoes Recipe

It’s not just fries, I actually really love potatoes in general. So especially right around the holiday season, a recipe for mashed potatoes was bound to be shared here of course. These mashed potatoes are nice and creamy, and only got a couple of ingredients. Sometimes, simplicity is key if you ask me!

Serves: 2   |  Prep Time: 15 mins  |  Cook Time: 25 mins  | Total: 40 mins
Cooking & Kitchen Supplies: medium cooking pot  |  potato masher  |  small frying pan


  • 550g potatoes
  • 50g butter
  • 120ml whole cream
  • 3 sage leaves
  • 2 twigs thyme
  • ground salt & pepper to taste

We combined these mashed potatoes with the Irish Beef Stew recipe that I posted earlier, but they are very versatile, and will go with almost any saucy dish or gravy!

How to prepare Creamy Herbed Mashed Potatoes

  1. Peel your potatoes and cut them into roughly the same size pieces if you have big, or different-sized potatoes.
  2. Place your potatoes in a cooking pot and cover them with cold water. Add some salt to the water and bring the potatoes to a boil. 
  3. Once the water is boiling, boil the potatoes until they are tender enough to stick a fork into without too much resistance. This should take about 20 minutes.
  4. Around 15 minutes in, melt half of your butter in a small frying pan and add your sage & thyme. Fry on medium heat until your butter is slightly browned.
  5. When done, drain your potatoes, and mash them in the pot over a low heat.
  6. Season with ground salt & pepper, and add the other half of your butter and the whole cream to the potatoes. Mash some more.
  7. Add half of your herby browned butter to the potatoes. The sage & thyme should be crispy, so it’s very easy to crumble them into the mashed potatoes. If you want to go for a more aesthetic approach however, you can also choose to serve (part of) the herbs on top of the mashed potatoes.
  8. Transfer your creamy mashed potatoes to a serving dish, and drizzle the rest of the herb butter over the potatoes.
  9. Serve & enjoy them however you like!
