    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    Grandpa Karsky was the grandfather of my daugter's now ex-fiance and from what I hear he was a great cook and a wonderful guy. He passed away before we met the family. It's too bad his grandson didn't follow in his footsteps in being a wonderful guy! :-) This is another Grandpa Karsky recipe and it is creamy and delicious. Not your ordinary potato recipe. The recipe says to refrigerate overnight, which of course you can do, but you can also bake it right away for around 20 - 30 minutes or until it is heated through. Because it can sit overnight it makes it a great recipe for any party because it's already made and you just pop it in the oven! Grandpa Karsky was aparently famous for shortening recipe instructions so I have embelshed this one a bit. Also, sometimes the potatoes are too dry for my tatstes so I've added some milk or some extra sour cream to make them creamier. I have also sprinkled cheese and/or bacon during the last 10 minutes of baking.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 lbs red potatoes (I peel about half and leave the peel on half and cut into quarters)
    • 8 ounces cream cheese
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons butter (divided with 2T in the potatoes and the other 2T dotting the top of the casserole before baking)
    • milk (if potatoes seem too dry for your tastes) or sour cream (if potatoes seem too dry for your tastes)


    1. 1
      Lightly grease a 9 X 13 cake pan. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender. Drain, and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Mash until smooth. Stir in cream cheese, sour cream, garlic salt, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Beat until light and fluffy. Add additional sour cream or milk if the potatoes are too dry for your tastes. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish.
    2. 2
      Refrigerate overnight.
    3. 3
      Remove from the refrigerator, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Dot casserole with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
    4. 4
      Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until heated through.

      a cousin's mother-in-law calls this Glorified Potatoes and got the recipe from the country club she and her husband belong to. Of course, she passed the recipe on to her d-i-l (my cousin) who passed it on to the rest of us. It is truly a delicious recipe and I have another cousin who would make the full 5 lb recipe for herself. After baking she would cut it into single serving squares and would have it for dinner all week. It is a holiday staple at our gatherings, and it isn't unusual to hear fights over the last scoop left in the pan. We do usually top with shredded cheddar.

      Made this for Thanksgiving this year as an alternative to plain mashed. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out really tasty. Next time I make these I will add the extra milk or sour cream as mine dried out after original cooking. Thanks for sharing!!
