Mashed Potato Casserole

This is a great potato dish to make for a big holiday dinner as it is simple and can be prepared ahead of time. Unlike plain mashed potatoes, it reheats easily and tastes just as good as the first time you baked it. Freezes well too.

9 large potatoes
18 oz. softened regular or low fat cream cheese *
1 cup regular or low fat cream sour cream *
2 tsp. salt
2 tbs. butter
pepper
chopped chives, optional
paprika for sprinkling on top, optional

* low fat cream cheese and sour cream taste great and produce good results when used in place of full fat, but DO NOT use fat free products as these are foul and you will regret it.

Cook and mash potatoes well.
Add all ingredients except chives.
Mash some more.
Stir in chives.
Place in greased casserole.
Bake uncovered for 30 min. in 350 oven (bake 1 hour from frozen)

Is the 18 oz of cream cheese correct? (I thought maybe it was supposed to be 8, since that is the standard size of cream cheese packages?) I'd love to make this, so just wanted to double check!

Yup, it is 18 oz. I'm sure it would work with 16 though if you don't wish to purchase a third pkg of cheese. Love this recipe for big suppers so I am not mashing and trying to make gravy etc. all at once. Just one less thing to do right before you serve.

I usually put a teaspoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of onion powder in this too, and, oh heck, why not, make three or four slices of crisp bacon and crumble them in.

And you're right, MomOf2 - everyone oohs and ahhs over this, and it's so easy.

I'm salivating here! I too, will make this but will cut the salt back to half a teaspoon. Bacon crumbled on top sounds wonderful too. Maybe a bit of grated cheddar on top for visual appearance. I can hardly wait! Thanks for posting!

The potato casserole was a HUGE hit, and will go into my recipe file for future occasions! It was way easier than peeling, mashing, etc. during the making of Christmas dinner. I made it the night before and just popped it into the oven. I did take agony's hint and added a little garlic powder and onion powder. I guess you could add any seasonings that you like. Thanks so much!

Very welcome cinnam0n! I also made this for Christmas supper.

Alternatives to powders if you prefer:
If you like it oniony, add a handful of chopped chives; they add a bit of colour and texture along with an onion flavour.

If you like it garlicky you can drop a few cloves of garlic into the pot with your potatoes while they cook. When potatoes are done, remove garlic cloves, peel (peel slips right off when cooked), and mash with potatoes. Easy peasy!

That's strange, as I can see it now. Please let me know if it returns next time you happen to see one of my posts. Thanks.

Good idea about the garlic clove mashed in - I used to do this and got out of the habit. It does taste better than the powder.

Since we are in the midst of the Holidays, I thought we could share some of our favorite recipes. I see friends posting and 'pinning' on Facebook - how about we share some of those yummies here as well?
