I found this recipe on foodnetwork.com. After making these for my BF i was convinced that these are the way to go! We both loved them, and couldn't get enough! Next time I am going to try the chive cream cheese in this...

Very nice version of mashed potatoes. I happen to have Herb and Garlic cream cheese on hand, so I used that. I also used parsley, as the chives are now covered with snow. Thanks Perfektlys for a lovely recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2009

  2. When the potatoes are tender, drain them and return them to the hot pot to let them dry out a bit.
  3. Mash potatoes with half-and-half or milk using a potato masher.
  4. Add in the cream cheese and smash until the cheese melts into the potatoes.
  5. Add chives or scallions.
  6. Season with salt and pepper, to your taste.
