Mashed Potatoes

I made these mashed potatoes last night for our community group Thanksgiving potluck and there were none left! Pretty much the only "secret ingredient" is cream cheese. If you just toss some cream cheese into whatever you usually do with your mashed potatoes, you'll see a big difference. Super creamyness. Super yummy. Great with gravy, or by themselves. In fact, if you're not doing gravy drizzle in some truffle oil for super deliciousness.

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

5 lbs potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 stick butter, melted
1/2-3/4 block cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup milk (or more for desired consistency)
1/2 cup sour cream
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

Boil the potatoes in a stock pot until fork tender.  Drain and return potatoes to the pot and put the pot on the warm burner to help heat out any water in the potatoes.  Mash potatoes using a potato masher or hand mixer and add in butter, cream cheese, milk and sour cream. Season well. Enjoy!
