Sunday Dinner Mashed Potatoes

Sunday Dinner Mashed Potatoes

"Sour cream and cream cheese add delicious dairy flavors to these potatoes. They're special enough to serve guests and can be prepared in advance. Since I'm a busy mother, that's a convenience I appreciate. -Melody Mellinger, Myerstown, Pennsylvania"

I have done this recipe for the last two Thanksgivings and everyone raves about them! It is really easy to make them for 30 or more people!
