Holiday Mashed Potatoes

My grandmother makes these delectable mashed potatoes at our holiday meals, such as Easter, Thanksgiving, & Christmas. Once you try this recipe, you won't want to go back to regular potatoes!

Holiday Mashed Potatoes
INGREDIENTS:
6-8 large potatoes, peeled and cubed 
4 oz Cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup salted butter
Paprika, optional

HOW TO PREPARE: In a large pot, boil potato chunks for 15 minutes or until soft. Drain the water. In a large bowl, combine potato chunks, cream cheese, sour cream, salt, pepper, and butter. Using a hand mixer, mix until blended. If  you need to add more sour cream to get it nice and creamy, you can do that. Pour into greased 13x9 in casserole dish. Sprinkle with paprika and top with small chunks of butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve.

I like to make these potatoes the day before a holiday and keep in the refrigerator. I try to set the dish out on the counter for an hour before baking, but you don't have to. One of the really nice things about this recipe, other than how delicious it tastes, is that these reheat well.  Print Friendly and PDF Pin It
