I thought I would re-run a very popular recipe on this blog ~ holiday mashed potatoes. They are so good and easy to make. I love that I can make them the day before and there is no mashing of potatoes right while I’m trying to get a holiday meal on the table. My Mom used to make them and now our whole family makes them.
Holiday Mashed Potatoes
5 lbs potatoes, peeled and cooked
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 dash pepper
Beat hot potatoes until all lumps are removed. Add cream cheese (in small pieces) and the butter. Beat well until cheese and butter are completely melted and mixed. Stir in sour cream. Add eggs and onion to milk and add this to the potatoes with salt and pepper. Beat until light and fluffy.
Place in a greased 9-inch casserole. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until lightly rounded on top (puffy).
Makes 6-8 servings.
