Peel potatoes and cut into large cubes. Place in a pot with enough water to cover the potatoes. Add some salt to the pot. Gently boil the potatoes until they are fork tender.
Drain the potatoes in a colander. Place in a large mixing bowl, add the sour cream and cream cheese. Using a mixer beat until smooth. Add the butter, chives, salt and pepper to taste.
Place the potatoes in a greased two quart casserole. Dot with butter and sprinkle with paprika . Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Serves 8 people
This recipe can be made the day before dinner and refrigerated in a crock-pot. Then, on the serving day, just turn on the crock-pot at the low setting and slowly cook the potatoes for about 2-3 hours (to be ready when the rest of the dinner is ready).
Freezing (and un-freezing)
These potatoes (or your favorite recipe) can also be frozen. The morning that they are to be served, the potatoes should be thawed. the potatoes should be covered with aluminum foil, poke holes in the top of the foil for the steam to escape. Place in a 300 degree oven for 30-45 minutes or until heated through. You can also drizzle 4 tablespoons of butter over the thawed potatoes BEFORE placing them in the oven.
How I reheated the mashed potatoes....
The mashed potato recipe sounds great! I can wait to try it. At Thanksgiving I had to transport the mashed potatoes to my brothers and wait until everything was ready to get them hot. Because my brother has a small range and we had other things cooking, I couldn't make them there. What I did was to boiled the potatoes at home, peel them and rice them while they where still hot. then I added some olive oil to them and mixed it alittle. Later at my brother's I added the hot milk, and a little butter and salt. I blended it in the blender and placed it in a baking dish. It came out as if it had just been made!
