Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - The Best Mashed Potatoes EVER!

My dear friend and neighbor shared her favorite family recipe with me before Thanksgiving and it was such a hit that I have to share it will all of your for this latest installment of Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.



Best Mashed Potatoes EVER!!

5 lbs. potatoes

1 stick butter

1 tub (pint) sour cream

1 brick cream cheese

1/4 tsp onion salt

1/2 tsp garlic salt

seasoning salt to taste


Boil the snot out of the potatoes (skins on or off), drain and mash.

Combine with all ingredients. Place in casserole and broil for 5 mins to brown the top.

Yummy! Also great leftovers…they reheat wonderfully!


She warned me that these potatoes were so good that there would be no need for gravy. Did I heed her advice? No. So after Thanksgiving Dinner, I threw out almost all of the Turkey and Pork Gravy...because no one wanted to "ruin" the taste of these heavenly spuds!

Hope you all take my advice and try these taters...but learn from my lesson and let them stand alone...no extras needed!

Those are some of my favorite food groups....sour cream, cream cheese! That would liven up a boring bowl of mashed potatoes. Yummy. Good luck with the giveaway.

5 pounds of potatoes?! Yikes!! That's alot of peeling! And I guess a short cut to that would ruin the recipe, huh?

That sounds delish! I'm originally from the south where taters are at nearly every meal (along with biscuits-lol). Perfect timing too, I've got tater duty for a big charity dinner this Thursday!

I am getting hungry reading all of these wonderful recipes!

that's the recipe I use at Thanksgiving--and I put them in the crock pot on warm so I don't have to worry about them all day (I do them early before the guests arrive)
