Another recipe I am making this week calls for cottage cheese in the potatoes. I don't have any so I've decided to use one of the 5 boxes of cream cheese instead. I think it will work well, but in the meantime we are having this as a side tonight with our meatloaf.
Cream Cheese and Chive Mashed Potatoes
2-3 lbs potatoes, peeled, cubed
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, cubed
2 tbsp dried chives
1/2 cup milk(may need more depending on how thick you want them)
salt and pepper to taste
Cover potatoes with water. Cook until tender about 15 mins. Drain potatoes and add in cream cheese and chives. Mash until you reach the consistency you wish to have.
**I think they needed more chives, but K thought they were great.
