Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

Oh mashed potatoes, how I do love thee.  Mashed potatoes definitely make the cut for my last meal and would be eaten with a carefully crafted gravy volcano.

My mom used to make these mashed potatoes called “Deluxe Mashed Potatoes” on the holidays and they were delicious, so I tried to mimic them the best that I could.  This is a recipe for some cheesy mashed potato goodness.  If you are on a diet, you either need to close this page now, or just say “screw it” and enjoy 🙂

 Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

8-10 medium potatoes

4oz. cream cheese softened

4tbsp sour cream

1 tbsp milk

6 tbsp butter

¼ tsp garlic powder

1 tsp dried dill

¼ tsp salt

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Peel and quarter potatoes.  Cook potatoes in a large sauce pan with enough water to cover them for about 20-25 mins or untill tender.  Drain liquid.

2.  You can use a food processor or electric hand mixer.  If using a food processor you may have to do the mixing in 2 sessions so divide ingredients as needed.   Combine potatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, milk, butter, garlic powder, dill, salt and shredded cheese.  Beat/pulse mixture until fluffy.

3.  Put mixture into a  9×13 baking dish and bake for 30 mins covered, and 15 mins uncovered

Makes approx. 8 servings
