A quick & easy side dish! I scaled the recipe in half, used 1% milk, low fat sour cream & light cream cheese - it still tasted good. I substituted chopped green onions (no chives on hand) & omitted the chilies. Thanx Fay!
I chose this recipe since it did not need to baked unlike other cream cheese mashed potato recipes. I used 5 small russets since they were on sale this week at the market... I used organic 2% milk, butter, full fat sour cream and cream cheese and fresh chives from the garden. I also added in 2 cloves of garlic to the potatoes as they boiled... I chose to chop the potatoes into chunks rather than slices and boiled for 17 minutes... I used my mixer to incorporate all the ingredients and they were so silky smooth and delicious... I wouldn't change a thing... a great side to Eye of Round Crock Pot Roast... thanks for sharing!!!
Wow, these were perfect. I didn't tinker with this recipe at all, which is unusual for me-- all the amounts were dead accurate! I used real butter but substituted neufchatel cheese, fat free sour cream, and nonfat milk for the other ingredients. Still, they tasted fat-laden and delicious. :) I loved the chives, and next time I'll try the suggested cilantro/mint combo. I'll also add the chiles, but didn't for the sake of my kiddo this time around. I made these ahead and popped them, tightly covered, in a slow oven to keep them hot. Thanks for posting!
