Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes

I wish I knew who created this recipe. It ran in the Redding newspaper about 5 years ago (but a website search turned up zilch). Anyway, I love that these potatoes can be made the night before Thanksgiving. I also make Herta's Sweet Potatoes the night before, which makes Thanksgiving Day all that much more enjoyable.

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes:
5 pounds baking potatoes
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese at room temperature
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon white pepper

First peel potatoes, then cut them. Boil potatoes until fork tender. Drain water. Mash potatoes and blend in other ingredients. Put mashed potatoes into a buttered casserole dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

On Thanksgiving Day, let potatoes sit at room temperature for a couple of hours before heating. Heat at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Dab with butter and chopped parsley, if desired. Enjoy!

These were called Pet potatos in my family growing up because my grandma always made them for her "favorite" per request. So glad to know others like them too. I actually made them with some leftovers recently too. Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
