I was surprised I couldn't find this recipe here. It is the only mashed potato recipe I use for the holidays,as it is even better made a day ahead. Not only is it delicious, but it's one less pot to wash when you want to enjoy your company. This also makes a nice potluck dish.

  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into large cubes and boil in salted water until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese, then stir in the sour cream, milk and spices.
  3. Drain and mash the potatoes in the pot, then stir in the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Spoon into a casserole dish or a 9x13 pan.
  5. You may cover it and refrigerate for 24 hours, or proceed to baking right away.
  6. Bake covered with foil at 350 for 45 min's.

These were great - and with no butter too! I've been searching for a go-to mashed potato recipe and I think I just found it :) Also, I found it doesn't need to be baked, it tastes great without the last step.

My review is the same as Parsley's. Whether the cook chooses to use full fat sour cream and cream cheese or low fat, these mashed potatoes turn out rich and creamy. I also have a love of Yukon potatoes. Drizzled a bit of fresh chives from the herb garden on each serving. Thanks for posting. This recipe will be added to my Spud Powered cookbook, Dee. cg

I've made mashed potatoes similar to this in the past (with the cream cheese and sour cream) and they always come out creamy and smooth with just a hint of richness. Even if you use reduced-fat dairy products (which I did), you still get great results. These potatoes are sure to please everyone. Thanx for a winning mashed potato recipe!
