Very good! Served with corned beef, Irish soda bread, and roasted carrots for St. Patrick's Day. Light and fluffy without being full of butter and fat. Only change I made was to put potato mixture through a large-holed ricer. Love those Cooking Light recipes, thanks for sharing!

Oh yum, Sharon these are wonderful! I am usually a very traditional butter/milk/salt mashed potato kind of girl, but tonight I resisted temptation to change the recipe up and tried the cream cheese and sour cream. Yum! Very fluffy and very rich, though I used fat free versions of both ingredients. For me the real kicker was using garlic and broth to boil the veggies; it really added that special something. Made for St. Patty's to go under Irish Stew, and I will revisit the recipe I'm sure. It makes quite a lot and is quite filling! I scaled the recipe back to serve four and still had a good amount left over. FWIW my 3 year old didn't notice the cabbage at all--woohoo! Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.
