Cream Cheese Whipped Potatoes

Years ago I would make this dish by first making my homemade mashed pototoes.  That involved peeling and quartering the potatoes and boiling them in salted water until done.  Then I would drain off the liquid, add butter and milk and whip them with an electric mixer – whipping in the cream cheese at the end.  THEN I started using the refrigerated prepared mashed potatoes and just stirring in the cream cheese and microwaving until heated.  What a time saver and the results are just as good!

Sometimes the simple recipes are the best!
