Bring steakhouse style spuds home with these super simple mashed potatoes

Print this recipe
There are mashed potatoes, and then there are steakhouse style mashed potatoes. These are the simplest spuds you’ll ever make (you don’t even need to peel the potatoes!) and the easiest way to fool your family or your dinner guests into thinking you know the culinary secrets of the best restaurant in town.
The secret is boiling the potatoes in broth (you can use regular chicken broth, but since you’ll be discarding it afterwards, it’s easier and cheaper to go the bouillon route), which adds some savory flavor to the potatoes themselves. Plus, the combination of cream cheese, butter, milk, garlic, and fresh chives strikes the perfect balance of creamy and flavorful. Serve it with everything and anything.
