DIRECTIONS

  • Butter and cream cheese should be allowed to soften at room temperature for ease of use. Leaving them on the counter while you peel the potatoes should be sufficient.
  • Peel potatoes, rinse, and cut into large chunks. Place in a large stockpot and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes and boil till tender.
  • While potatoes boil, blend 1 1/3 cup butter with the cream cheese. (This is best done in a stand mixer.) Add sour cream and mix well. Set aside.
  • Chop green onions, and refrigerate in a ziplock bag till serving time.
  • Drain cooked potatoes and mash or whip to your liking (I like them super smooth, but some people prefer them lumpy.).
  • Add the dairy blend to the potatoes and mix well. You can either do this in your stock pot, or divide it up into more manageable portions.
  • Once it's all mixed, load it into your crockpot and whack it into the fridge.
  • On serving day, dot the top of the potatoes with the remaining butter. Put the crockpot on low setting for 2-3 hours or until heated thru, then turn down to 'keep warm' setting (if your crockpot has one) till dinner time.
  • Can be served directly from the crockpot for buffet, or divvied up into serving dishes for family style dining.
