Aunt Donna’s Garlic & Chives Mashed Potatoes


  • 810 potatoes (Russet – or equivalent volume of red, leave skin on if possible!)
  • 8 oz reduced free cream cheese or Greek cream cheese (I like to use Greek for twice the protein)
  • 1 cup fat free sour cream
  • 5 garlic cloves (or more, if desired!)
  • chives
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Scrub, wash and boil the potatoes. Or slice them and cook in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes.
  2. Mash them along with all other ingredients, adding skim milk if needed to make creamier.
  3. Place all ingredients in a 2 qt. casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
