Party Potatoes
My hubby's favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner has always been his mom's party-potatoes. They are similar to mashed potatoes, but with an added dose of decadence. Since we are heading to Michigan to visit my family this year over TG, I will be making this recipe, so I thought I would share it. (They are actually better if you make them the day before!)

PARTY POTATOES RECIPE

8-10 potatoes
1 stick of butter
8 oz. cream cheese
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. garlic salt (to taste)
Butter and paprika

Cook potatoes and whip with above ingredients in order given. Keep butter and cream cheese at room temperature. Dot bottom of casserole with butter, add whipped potatoes and sprinkle top with paprika and butter. Bake at 350 until fully heated –(30–40 minutes).

Note: I buy an extra package of cream cheese in case the taste is not rich enough & add as much as needed.

Enjoy!

RE: Party Potatoes
Mmmmm :-) *urp* These sound great!

Here in the Great White North (I can say that today since my part of Canada has a wee dusting of snow at the moment) our butter is usually packaged in 1 lb bricks. So when you say "1 stick of butter" how much in ounces?

As well, if you were using mashed garlic cloves instead of garlic salt, how much would that be?

Oh sure! Make me do math on a Friday!!! ;-)

So, around these parts, one stick of butter is equivalent to 1/4 lb, 8 TBS, or 1/2 cup...so, if 1 lb is 16 oz., then 1/4 stick would be 4 oz, right?

On the garlic - hmmm...one TSP of garlic salt isn't much, but it goes a long way. Not sure what the conversion to mashed or minced garlic would be. I'm of the mindset that you can't really ever have too much garlic, so I would try just going by taste, a little at a time. Might need to add a little salt to tast as well, since you're not using garlic salt.

Hope this helps! Let me know how it turns out!

RE: Party Potatoes
I made mashed potatoes the other day using approximately 3# potatoes for the five of us. I added butter, a little milk and a container of Philadelphia Italian Cheese & Herb cooking creme to them. I didn't have any leftovers and the boys wanted to lick the pot out...they were that good and easy to make!!

RE: Party Potatoes
It's my turn for Turkey Day fun and food. So I think I just might have to try this recipe. However I may have up 20 people at the house which means doubling or tripling the recipe.

Going to give these a test drive this weekend. Gotta make sure they're worthy of the T-Giving table Wink
