Momma's Mash Potatoes

Simply put, these are my mommas mash potatoes at which she is hugely famous for. Every holiday or event that has to do with family and they're food involved, everyone is always begging my mother to make her famous mash potatoes. It's an ordinary mash potato recipe, however, everyone says that my momma makes it just right.

My mother hadn't made her famous mash potatoes in what seems like forever. She's been getting lazy and stopped making it. She's been getting the store bought kind now. Eww. Yesterday though, my boyfriend requested that my mother make her mash potatoes at least once for him to try. He had never tried he mash potatoes before, and he being the mash potato freak that he is, he was interested to see what these mash potatoes were all about.

So, my mom actually made her famous mash potatoes for the first time in a couple years. My father and my brother were extremely happy that she made her mash potatoes for once, and my boyfriend really enjoyed and approved her mash potatoes as being one of the best he'd had. Major kudos to my mommy!


8 large white potatoes, cubed
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper

1. Place potatoes in a saucepan with water; Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. If you don't like the skin for the potatoes, then peel them as well. I prefer the skin though. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until tender.

2. Drain and mash with . Add cream cheese, sour cream, butter, salt and pepper. Beat well. Add milk and beat till smooth. Then, add cheddar cheese.

3. Place into a 2 1/2 qt. dish and place into a 350 degrees oven for about 15 minutes. Just until it heats through.

I love mashed potato and I hate it often! That recipe looks good with the cream and the cheese - my favourite is just a drop of milk and a teaspoon of butter and of course some vegeta for flavouring!
