Don’t you love mashed potatoes? I do!

Are you looking for n easy side dish for Family Sunday Dinners?  This side dish recipe comes from the website of Christian Fiction Writer, Deborah Vogts.

Deborah’s  newest book, Snow Melts in Spring, will give readers a  feel for the country life that inspires her work..

Deborah says, “Here’s a recipe I enjoy making for family gatherings. So easy and can be prepared a day ahead.”

Refrigerator Mashed Potatoes
5 pounds red potatoes (9 large), diced and unpeeled
6 oz package cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons onion salt
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons butter

Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until tender. Drain. Mash until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and beat until light and fluffy. Place in oblong baking pan. Cool, cover, and place in refrigerator. May be used anything within two weeks. May reheat in microwave or a 350 degree oven until heated through, about 20-30 minutes.

Thanks, Debra, for giving permission for us to share this recipe with our readers. I think I’ll try this recipe for Easter.  YOu may want to check out Deborah’s website for additional recipes

    Although regular mashed potatoes are very good……if you would use sweet potatoes in their stead they are much better….much better for you and tastier. Mashed sweet potatoes are the only kind we eat in my family….they are Mmm-mmm good!

  2. Thanks, Jane. I’ll give that a try! We eat quite a bit of sweet potatoes at our house too. Appreciate the idea.
