10 lbs. potatoes, peeled, cubed, cooked and mashed
1, 8-oz. package cream cheese
1 pint sour cream
2 sticks butter, softened
4 tsp. salt
Chives and paprika, optional
Prepare potatoes. Cream together cream cheese, sour cream and butter. Add into the mashed potatoes a little at a time with mixer set on low speed. Do not over mix or potatoes will become gluey.
Put mixture in two buttered casseroles and refrigerate overnight. Bring to room temperature and sprinkle chives and paprika on top before heating. Bake, covered, at 350° for about an hour. Remove cover for last 15 minutes. Potatoes are done when outside edges begin to bubble and a knife in the center comes out hot.
