Baked Mashed Potatoes

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

Peel them...

...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?
