The hubby had a bunch of guys over to work the other day and we finished off their day of work with an appreciation supper. Steak was on the menu, so of course I had to find some yummy side dishes to go with it... Found these make ahead mashed potatoes when I was pouring through my recipe books and they were a hit! Sorry no pictures of this menu - I was too busy cooking up a storm and forgot to bust out the camera!
Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes
(recipe found in Taste of Home)
Serves: 12 3/4 cup servings
5 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
1 package (8 ounces) reduced fat cream cheese, cubed
2 egg whites, beaten
1 cup (8 ounces) reduced fat sour cream
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain. In a large bowl, mash potatoes with cream cheese. Combine the egg whites, sour cream, onion powder, salt and pepper. Stir into potatoes until blended. Transfer to a greased 3 quart baking dish. Drizzle with butter. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Uncover and bake 5-10 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160.
