However, in honor of tradition, I thought that I would share my mashed potato recipe with you. I know that mashed potatoes really don't need a recipe, but these are not your everyday taters! They are just a little something special. (and easy too, if you find yourself cooking for a big group)
- 5 lbs potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed
- 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream
- 3 tsp onion or garlic salt
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted
Combine all ingredients. Pour into your slow cooker. Cover. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Hint: These potatoes can be prepared 3-4 days in advance of serving and kept in the refrigerator until ready to warm! (Isn't that awesome?!) :o)
Sheri's tip: I like to peel and slice about 6 cloves of garlic and put them in the water with the potatoes while they are cooking, then I ommit the garlic/onion salt and just add a little more regular salt. I love my potatoes with lots of garlic!
Do you have any family traditions or recipes to share? Please do! I would love some new ideas!
