These are the BEST mashed potatoes EVER! And they are so user-friendly because you can make them the night before. I never take these anywhere without people begging me for the recipe. You can also use this recipe to create a twice baked potato too.

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!!

To quote another upstate New York girl - YUMMO!

I have never had mashed potatoes with sour cream I have liked. Though this is different enough it might be okay
