Boil 'em , mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew!!

Good day to you readers! Here I am with a recipe that I will actually eat!
"Company Mashed Potatoes"
This recipe, as far as I know, is my mother's. She might have got it from someone else, but who cares? Thank you mom! ;)
Lets get right to it shall we?


5 lbs potatoes, 8 oz cream cheese, 8 oz sour cream, 1 stick butter or margarine, 1 tsp onion powder.

You will notice the absence of the potatoes in this picture. Well, I peeled them, rinsed them, and cut them. The whole time thinking about the blog, and not remember my usual ingredient picture. Oh well, no harm done!


Boil potatoes. For me this took nearly a half an hour. Why so long? I used too small a pot, I think. Well, I think that is the reason for it taking so long, I know it was too small a pot.

Mash the potatoes. Add remaining ingredients, mix well.

Like my mixer? Its a Black and Decker, super legit. I bought a random $5 one at walmart once, and the first time I made frosting it starting smoking. Moral of the story? You get what you pay for.

Put in buttered casserole dish, and garnish with paprika. Refrigerate until needed. Heat in a 350 degree oven until warm.

The finished product! I could seriously eat this whole dish, but I restrained myself. Good thing its for church! I must add that I did not butter the dish, and I don't know if it makes a difference or not. My mom thinks so.


  1. It would also take less time to cook the taters if you cut them up smaller.

  2. And did you consult the Thanksgiving Cookbook I made for you? This is in there!
