I spent years looking for the perfect recipe for home-made mashed potatoes. We simply love potatoes at our house, and it doesn’t matter how they are served. I just wanted an easy recipe for them, that wouldn’t take a load of time, but would taste like it had. So here ya go….
Our Favorite Easy Homemade Mashed Potato Recipe
5 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed (really the type of potato doesn’t matter too much but we have found these really are the best)
6 oz. of cream cheese
8 oz. of sour cream
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. garlic salt
pepper, to taste
Place the potatoes in a large pot of water. You can add salt to lightly season the potatoes as they cook. Just drop a few pinches into the water. Bring the potatoes to a boil and cook until they are tender (about 15-20 minutes or so). Drain them and then mash them. In bowl, mix the mashed potatoes, the sour cream, the cream cheese, the milk, the garlic salt and the pepper. Mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Cover (tinfoil works GREAT!), and bake for 50 minutes at 325 degrees F. You can also prepare these ahead of time, and just put the bowl or even the casserole dish into the fridge and cook them the next day. So delicious!
