8 medium potatoes
1 cup sour cream
8 oz sour cream & chive cream cheese (softened)
4 Tbs butter
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
2 cloves garlic - crushed
2 tsp onion powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
bacon bits or crumbles (optional)
Boil potatoes until tender. Beat cream cheeseand sour cream in mixing bowl. Add hot (and drained) potatoes - beat until smooth adding small amounts of milk if necessary.
Add butter, chives and onion powder - mix well then add salt and pepper to taste.
Place in casserole dish and sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 25 minutes in a 350 degree F oven. If you like you can sprinkle with bacon bits or additional chopped chive before serving. (Personally I prefer the chives)
This is great because you can make ahead and bake whenever or if you bake it ahead it reheats perfectly!!
