Freezer Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Here's the other half of my on-sale bag of potatoes. I used the "pretty" potatoes to make Oven Fried Potato Wedges for the Freezer, and the oddly shaped or super small potatoes from the bag to make these mashed potatoes
I almost spooned up a small bowl of these just to eat myself before I packaged them up, because they were that good. I left out the milk to keep the potatoes on the dry side, as when mashed potatoes are frozen then thawed, sometime they thaw out a little runny.
When thawed, the texture of the potatoes were very runny. I was concerned, but baked them for 30 minutes with a sprinkle of paprika on top. They ended up drying out and being the perfect consistency and the great flavor carried through the freezing/thawing/baking process.
These would work great for entertaining during Christmas season! One less thing to put together last minute!
