These potatoes are a hit everytime I make them. I received this recipe from my grandmother who always liked to experiment with ingredients, and these potatoes became a winner. The cream cheese and sour cream give them a smooth taste. This recipe is great for people who like sour cream on their mashed potatoes.


  1. Peel and boil potatoes until soft.
  2. Drain potatoes, and mash.
  3. Add cream cheese, sour cream, and minced garlic to potatoes and mix until smooth.
  4. Grease a 13x9 baking dish and add mashed potatoes.
  5. Set the 4 pats of butter in various spots on top of potatoes, sprinkle with paparika.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
  7. *(Prep and cook time does not include boiling time of potatoes.).

I have made my mashed potatoes like this for years. It is a lot creamer than regular mashed potatoes. The only difference is I brown the garlic in the butter before adding it to the mixture to give it more of a garlic taste. Give these a try!!

My husband, a mashed potato lover, raved over these potatoes! He loved the combination of cream cheese and sour cream, said it was just right. He was surprised when I told him there was some garlic in it! Said he couldn't taste it. Thanks for a great recipe!

The creamiest mashed potatoes ever!I halved the recipe; and used the leftovers the next day in #51039 Pierogi Caserole, which I also halved. Good potatoes!
