Cheesy Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes - Recipe

These potatoes are so rich and creamy and SO good!
We were treated to these over Christmas, and the boys ate them all up so I knew I had to have the recipe.
Then again when can you ever go wrong with sour cream and cream cheese in a recipe?
This went very well with the meatloaf we had earlier this week and would go with a roast of your choice.
Enjoy!

NOTES:
  • You really use to regular cream cheese and sour cream, I used the low fat versions and they did not do the recipe justice.
  • I did not use cheddar cheese, figured there was enough dairy in the recipe.
  • We prefer to use garlic/onion powder than the salt, a bit better for your heart.
  • I used our fresh chives to garnish the top; they added a nice flavor to the potatoes.
