Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Rich and creamy mashed potatoes that are loaded with tons of flavor 🙂

5 lb russett potatoes
4 garlic cloves, minced
6 oz reduced fat cream cheese
4 tbsp butter
1 cup fat free milk
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
Garnish with fresh chopped parsley (optional)

Fill a large stock pot 3/4 of the way with cold water
Peel each potato and cut into 2 inch pieces and place in pot with water
Stir in minced garlic
Cover pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat
Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 20 minutes
Drain potatoes & garlic through a colander and return potatoes to the same pot and place back on the stove over medium heat and stir to help potatoes dry out some
In a large microwavable measuring cup place cream cheese and butter into microwave and cook for 1 minutes, stirring after 30 seconds
Stir in milk, salt & pepper
Pour half of the butter mixture into the potatoes and using a hand mixer begin to whip up the potatoes until smooth, adding in more liquid as needed
Taste and adjust seasoning as needed
Serve with fresh chopped parsley

Each serving is 6 WW+ points
