Mmmmm Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potato recipes.

When I married my husband, I never realized I was entering into a union with a bona-fide mashed potato-aholic. Yes, I really enjoy a nice helping of the fluffy stuff, but I've never had someone so avidly request recipes for mashed potatoes.

So, in the years that we have been married, I have had to become a connoisseur of the lowly mashed potato. All kinds of recipes have been gobbled. Some got a thumbs up ("yes, make it again") and some were consigned to the bottom of the recipe stack.

This mashed potato recipe got a two thumbs up. Eureka! Before I give you the recipe, I will note that the resulting dish is pretty soft. If you like your mashed potatoes a little stiffer, either cut down on the milk and/or chicken broth, or add more potatoes.

In theory this recipe serves 8, but not around here!


Mmmmm Mashed Potatoes

2-1/2 lbs. potatoes, peeled and diced
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon horseradish

1/2 cup green onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons chicken broth
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup butter

Potatoes: Put potatoes in a big saucepan. Add enough water to cover the potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and let the potatoes until tender, about 17 minutes. Drain the water, then place the potatoes in a large bowl. Use a mixer and mash with the remaining ingredients. Set aside. Turn on the oven to pre-heat to 300 degrees.

Mixture: In a skillet, sauté the onions and garlic in the butter until tender. Add the salt, pepper and chicken broth. Mix and add to the potato mix in the bowl. Mix thoroughly and pour into a baking dish. Put in the 300 degree oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
