These mashed potatoes can be made ahead, then baked in the oven or reheated in a crockpot. Perfect for Thanksgiving and very creamy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and cut potatoes into quarters.
  2. Boil just until soft.
  3. Drain potatoes, reserving a moderate amount of the cooking water.
  4. Start mashing potatoes by hand or in a mixer.
  5. Add cream cheese, garlic salt, pepper, sour cream and butter.
  6. Continue mashing until the desired consistency is reached and ingredients are well blended.
  7. Note: Some of the reserved cooking water can be added if the potatoes are too thick.
  8. Put in a buttered casserole dish (or crockpot).
  9. Dot top with additional butter if desired.
  10. Bake uncovered in oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
  11. If making ahead, refrigerate; then bake for 50 minutes in oven or heat thoroughly in crockpot.
  12. When I bake in my crockpot, I use the low setting for 5 to 7 hours, stirring occasionally.

I made these last year for thanksgiving and I can't believe I didn't give them a rating. And here it is Thanksgiving again. These potatoes are excellent! Highly recommended. Everyone loved them and went back for seconds. Thank you Donna!
