Creamy Potatoes a la DH

Okay, here it is...my dear wife said I had to post my secret recipe for those great creamy potatoes. And yes it is a pretty easy recipe, it has to be for me to remember it!!
So, here it is: Simply prepare the mashed potatoes then add in those great extra ingredients - a big chunk or two of cream cheese, a dollop (make that 7 or 8 big dollops) of sour cream, plus some garlic powder and white pepper. Then whip it up all up with a hand power mixer to really blend all ingredients really well.

So, that's it. From there you can pop them in the oven on the spot - or refrigerate or freeze them for another day. And of course, they really go well with turkey, and ham, and pork, and beef, and and.......

Julie here...I take over at the "pop it in the oven" stage - about an hour if they are at room temp and a little longer if cold. Thaw first if frozen. You are really just getting them nice and hot and a little brown on top. These potatoes save you peeling, draining, mashing when you are busy with all the other aspects of the meal because it can all be done ahead of time. Into the oven and out of the oven and onto the table. You can add a little onion salt if you want.

Do you want to know that the recipe isn't really secret because I found the same recipe in a Best of Bridges cookbook a few years ago and I have been making those same potatoes for family meals!! Okay, I won't tell you then.LOL
