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
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
