Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Here is a Super Bowl specialty that I cooked with our chicken fried steak for Super Bowl Sunday.  These mashed potatoes are rich and decadent. This is a recipe liberally adapted from Southern Living.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Serves: 5


  • 3 pounds baking potatoes
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz. sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese


  1. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch cubes. Cook in a medium saucepan in boiling water to cover 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain and place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add cream cheese and next 4 ingredients
  3. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy (do not overbeat).
  4. Spoon into a lightly greased 9 inch- x 9-inch or 2-quart baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle cheese over top
  6. Bake, covered, at 325° for 40 minutes or until thoroughly heated; garnish, if desired.

Note: Unbaked mashed potatoes may be chilled up to 2 days. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes, and bake as directed.
