Nothing says holiday like FOOD!
So without further ado here is my mother in law's famous mashed potato recipe lovingly refered to in our home as:
Heart Attack Potatoes
½ lb cream cheese
¼ cup butter
¼ cup whipping cream
a sprinkle of chives
1 cup sour cream
salt and pepper
Boil potatoes until tender. Drain the water. Return to pot.Put cream cheese and butter on top of potatoes and place the lid on the pot. Let sit until butter and cream cheese have softened. Add remaining ingredients and either mash by hand or blend with a hand mixer. Slather with gravy if desired and overindulge.
