I only make this mashed potato recipe at Thanksgiving because I'm not gonna lie, it's not good for you :) I tried to lighten it up with reduced fat ingredients but sometimes it's worth splurging on the good stuff!
What you will need:
- 8 to 10 potatoes
- 1 onion, peeled but keep it whole
- 2/3 of a bar of light cream cheese
- 1/2 of a container of reduced fat sour cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
Start with 8 to 10 potatoes
|...and dice them into smaller pieces. Try to keep them around the same size because this will ensure they cook evenly and faster.|
Cover the potatoes with cold water (another trick that will ensure they cook evenly!)
There is on step I forgot here but I usually peel an onion and boil it with the potatoes...whoops!
Once cooked, drain and add to a mixing bowl with butter sour cream, cream cheese and pepper to taste.
(Normally the onion would be in here too)
Mash until you get the consistency you want
Transfer to a baking dish and sprinkle Paprika on top. Add a few slices of cold butter - Another step I forgot to take a picture of. I guess I wasn't on my game that day but you can picture what it will look like!
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes at 350 F
Done and done! How easy was that?
