Cream Cheese Potatoes Recipe

Flavored with garlic salt and chives, these potatoes are rich, creamy and oh, so yummy. A sprinkling of paprika gives this dish a festive look. We prefer these to plain mash potatoes.—Cyneli Fynaardt, Oskaloosa, Iowa

"We thought that these potatoes were absolutely delicious! I apparently didn't use large enough potatoes because once mashed, they were creamy enough without the addition of milk. My husband usually has to have gravy on his potatoes, but agreed with me that these didn't need any. I will definitely be making this recipe again!"

"I made this recipe for Easter last year and it was a hit! I really liked that I could make it in the morning, put it in the fridge and then bake it before company arrived. I baked it in a 9x13" baking pan. I also used light sour cream, light cream cheese and skim milk and I wasn't able to tell that it was "light"."
