Sour Cream Potatoes

Ok, it's been a while since I've posted any recipes, so I thought it was time. Besides, I made regular mashed potatoes the other night for dinner, and they just didn't compare. Looks like I'll have to manage my time better next time I want potatoes, because these are the BOMB!!!

10 medium red potatoes, peeled and quartered (you can use russetts or yukons)
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed (don't skimp, use the REAL stuff!)
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons butter, divided
1 Tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 1/4 teaspoons garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika (I shake until I think it looks good – I DON’T measure!!)

Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
In a large mixing bowl, mash the potatoes. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, milk, 1 Tablespoon butter, parsley and garlic salt; beat until smooth.
Spoon into a greased 2-qt baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika; Dot with remaining butter. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until heated through.
Yield: 6-8 servings

You really can't go wrong with this recipe!
