CREAMY MASHED POTATOES

Everyone loves a good mashed potato. My kids love the commercial ones because of the gravy. I found one mashed potatoes that tastes great and would do well for an outdoor gathering.

You will need:
5 potatoes (large size)
Small Onion, chopped till fine
4-5oz or cream cheese, i use Kraft
100gm sour cream
80-100gm cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 tsp salt
dash pepper
3 tbsp butter
Parsley and Paprika

Peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes and boil till tender. On a mixing bowl, beat the potatoes( mash with a fork first before beating), adding cream cheese, sour cream, onions, sour cream, grated cheese, salt and pepper. When it is creamy, scoop it out into a casserole dish. With the butter, gently dot the top part of the potato mixture and sprinkle with parsley and paprika on the top. Leave it in the fridge overnight. It is ready to be baked in the oven at medium heat till the mixture is warm for serving. You can place it in a thermal bag for your outing. Yummy!
