Seriously who would think that you would get Irish mashed potatoes from an italian girl but it is true - actually I got this from my psuedo mother in law (the man hasn't married me but she is my mom) and she taught me how to make it with love! Enjoy!

Prep:

35 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

9 medium
potatoes
8 oz
cream cheese - i use reduced fat and no one ever notices!
8 oz
sour cream - again i use reduced fat!
1/2 c
oleo - i use butter - okay so i added back calories!
1/2 c
chives - chopped
1 clove
garlic - minced
2 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook potatoes in boiling water - then drain and mash.
2
Beat in remaining ingredients until mixed with potatoes (a fun variation is to through in some chedder cheese but take out the salt or it gets to salty!)
3
Put in a lightly buttered caserole dish - cover and refrigerate it over night (you can skip this if you want but there is something about letting the falvors combine. I have done it both ways for my family. They don't notice but I do!)
4
Take out let stand for five minutes while preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes. (Another nice touch is sprinkling paprika on top before baking.)
