Baked Mashed Potatoes

I only make this mashed potato recipe at Thanksgiving because I’m not gonna lie, it’s not good for you 🙂 I tried to lighten it up with reduced fat ingredients but sometimes it’s worth splurging on the good stuff!

  • 8 russet baking potatoes
  • 1 onion, peeled but keep it whole
  • 2/3 of a bar of light cream cheese
  • 1/2 of a container of reduced fat sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Paprika
  • Cold butter
  1. Peel your potatoes and dice them into small even sized pieces (this will help them cook evenly).
  2. Cover the potatoes with cold water and add the onion (another trick that will ensure they cook evenly!)
Preheat your oven to 350 F.[br][br]
  1. Once cooked, drain and add to a mixing bowl with butter sour cream, cream cheese and pepper to taste.
  2. Mash until you get the consistency you want.
  3. Transfer to a baking dish and sprinkle paprika on top. Add a few slices of cold butter.
  4. Bake uncovered for 35 to 45 minutes.
