Cheesy Mashed Potatoes



This is the last recipe from dinner at my parents'. This recipe is from Taste of Home, December/January 2002. I've never made this before. It came out good, but I felt like I tasted the sour cream. I don't like plain sour cream at all. I loved the cheese.

Ingredients:
6 lg potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup chopped onion (omitted)
1 egg
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Additional shredded cheddar cheese, optional

Directions:

Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until very tender; drain well.

In a mixing bowl, mash potatoes. Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, sour cream, onion, egg, salt and pepper; beat until fluffy. Transfer to a greased 2 quarter baking dish.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with additional cheese if desired.

Cheese. Mashed potatoes. What's not to love! Paula can come up with more ways to cook those potatoes, can't she. I would love for you to visit diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com and check out Crock Pot Wednesday. Perhaps you will consider participating.
