Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Francisco in response to my quest for recipes using Balsamic Vinegar. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here).


8 medium sized potatoes
1 cup sour cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
5 Tblsp. butter
1/3 cup chives, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Additional butter

  • Boil peeled potatoes until tender.
  • Beat sour cream and cream cheese together.
  • Add hot potatoes and beat until smooth.
  • Add butter, chives, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place in greased two quart casserole. Dot with butter and sprinkle paprika on top.
  • Bake at 350° degrees for 25 minutes.

This recipe can be made the day before dinner and refrigerated in crock-pot. Then, on the serving day, just turn on crock-pot at low setting and cook potatoes for about 2-3 hours, to be ready when the rest of the dinner is ready.

Serves 8 - 10
