Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes

These are our family’s famous “Party Potatoes.” They have been modified in recent years, yet we are quite attached to the original holiday recipe. These potatoes are one of the more involved aspects of our Thanksgiving dinner. It involves peeling, boiling, mashing and baking the potatoes.

The best way to really do this is to do everything the night before and then bake them on Thanksgiving Day.
