READY IN: 1hr 45mins
SERVES: 10-12




  • Set potatoes into a large stock pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil.
  • As soon as it starts to boil, lower the heat, cover, and cook for about 20-25 minutes or until your potatoes are very tender (time will vary based on actual size of your potatoes).
  • Drain and set back into the pan (no heat) and mash.
  • Add sour cream, neufchatel cheese, 4 Tbsp of the butter, onion, and salt to taste and stir until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Spread evenly into a greased 9x13" glass baking dish, and using the back of a wooden spoon, press shallow craters into the surface evenly across the potatoes.
  • Melt remaining butter and drizzle over the surface- some should pool up in the craters.
  • Sprinkle with a little paprika to garnish.
  • Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 350 F for 40 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  • To MAKE AHEAD: Prepare potatoes up until the part where you cover with foil- set the foil coverd pan in the fridge overnight; when ready to bake, set the pan on the counter for 30 minutes before placing into the preheated oven and bake as above.
