Mashed Potatoes

Thom Hackett

Serving:  8-10



I love mashed potatoes.



12 medium boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into large pieces (4 pounds)
1 cup milk
package (8-ounce size) cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
1 cup butter, softened
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper

Cooking Method

1.  Heat 1 inch water (salted) to boiling in Dutch oven.  Add potatoes.  Cover and heat to
boiling; reduce heat.  Cook 30 to 35 minutes or until tender; drain.  Shake pan with potatoes over low heat to dry.

2.  Mash potatoes in large bowl until no lumps remain.  Beat in milk in small amounts, beating after each addition (amount of milk needed to make potatoes smooth and fluffy depends on kind of potatoes used).  Add cream cheese, butter, salt and pepper.  Beat vigorously until potatoes are light and fluffy.
