These potatoes are so incredibly good you won't ever want to make regular mashed potatoes again! I received this recipe from my Grandma and think of her whenever I make them. My mom also makes this dish every year at Thanksgiving and other various gatherings throughout the year. It never fails that the next day someone will be staring in the refrigerator and yell out to no one in particular "Where are the leftover potatoes?". The answer is always the same "There weren't any left, we ate them all last night"!
Mashed Potatoes Supreme
9 large Russet Potatoes, peeled, boiled and drained
1 8 oz package Cream Cheese, softened
1 8 oz container Sour Cream
1 stick butter, divided
2 teaspoons onion powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mash the potatoes as normal. Blend in the cream cheese, sour cream, 1/2 stick butter, onion powder. Salt and pepper as needed. Mix well. Pour the mashed potato mixture into a large, lightly greased baking dish. Cut up remaining 1/2 stick of butter into 4-6 "pats" and place on top of potatoes. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the top is slightly browned.
