Mashed Potatoes {from heaven}

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds potatoes
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons sour cream (I always use light)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion
  • 3 generous shakes of lemon pepper

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the potatoes. (I weighed mine after peeling and it ended up being 4 pounds total.) Place the potatoes in a large pot of water and turn the heat to high. When it has reached a boil, lower the heat to medium, and continue to simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain the potatoes.
  2. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes, being sure to leave a few chunks. (Do not use a mixer. Then you get glue. Grooooss.) Add the butter, sour cream, milk, and cream cheese*, stirring well after each addition. Add the salt, pepper, seasoning salt, parsley, garlic, onion, and lemon pepper. Adjust seasonings to your taste and enjoy!
  3. *Sometimes I don't have cream cheese in the fridge. No biggie. Just up your sour cream a bit. (Or "so-cray" as Eric calls it.)
