8 large Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
3 tablespoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
1 cup unsalted butter, cubed
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1. Place your potatoes in a large pot, add enough water to cover, and then add in 3 tablespoons of kosher salt. Stir to combine, then bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or so, then strain from the water and place back over low heat to steam for 3 minutes to let off any excess water.
2. Preheat your oven to 450° degrees F. Place the potatoes in a mixer (or use a potato masher), add in the butter and cream cheese, and puree until smooth. Taste and add more salt, if you like.
3. Place the mashed potatoes in a baking dish, then bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot.
