5 lbs. potatoes, peeled
1 8 oz. package cream cheese
1 small carton sour cream
1 teaspoon. salt (put in water while cooking potatoes)
1 Tablespoon salt (add while mashing)
1/4 Tablespoon pepper
1/2 stick margarine or butter
Cook potatoes in salted water until done.
Drain and mash until smooth.
Add ingredients to mashed potatoes and beat until light and fluffy.
Put in casserole and cover. Put in refrigerator.
Use any time within two weeks or freeze to keep longer.
When ready to use, place in oven at 250 degrees and heat until heated completely. When heating frozen potatoes, let thaw partially before placing in oven. It takes quite a while to get them heated thru.
Very good, and the mess is cleaned up weeks before the party!
