Kansas Mashed Potatoes 

This mashed potato recipe was given to me by my Aunt Almedia -- my husband calls them Kansas Mashed Potatoes since my aunt lives in Kansas.  

Kansas Mash Potatoes

5 pound Yukon Golf Potatoes, peeled and quartered

Place potatoes in a large saucepan, and cover with water.  Add a little salt and bring water to a boil over medium heat.   Cook until tender but still firm.  Drain and return to stove top over low heat for a minute or two to dry the potatoes.


Add to potatoes: 

8 oz. softened cream cheese

1 cup sour cream

salt and pepper to salt

1/4 c soften butter.


Use a potato masher to mash until smooth.


These potatoes can be made ahead of time and kept warm in a crock pot, set on low.  Just add 1-2 T of additional butter before serving if it seems dry.
