Cream Cheese Whipped Potatoes

Comfort food at its finest! A bowl of yummy whipped potatoes can warm anyone, even in the coldest of temperatures. The cream cheese flavor sends your taste buds soaring.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 4 tablespoons low-fat cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper to taste

Preparation

  • Peel potatoes; cut into small chunks. Cover with water, bring to a boil and simmer until fork tender; about 20-30 minutes.
  • Drain and return to pot, reducing heat to low. Add remainder of ingredients and heat through (potatoes mash better when other ingredients are warm).

Alternative Preparations

  • Cook potatoes per directions ahead of time, drain, cover and refrigerate in a microwave-safe container.
  • Just before serving, add remainder of ingredients and microwave until hot, about 6 minutes total — stopping to stir once at 3 minutes. Whip as per remaining instructions.
  • Mash with hand mixer or with electric mixer.
