No pictures today because, well, how on earth do you make mashed potatoes look pretty. Even if they happen to be the best mashed potatoes on earth.
But before the recipe, and to compensate for the lack of photographic evidence, I thought I'd let you in on this little habit of mine. I am a compulsive recipe collector. I collect them from cookbooks and magazines and aunts who cook. And I collect them from every package I come in contact with. Now don't tell me you never thought of baking the chocolate cake from the Hershey's cocoa jar recipe. And you sometimes get unexpected rewards, like this mashed potatoes recipe on the carton of Philadelphia cream cheese.
They were purely plugging their product, but this one's a winner anyway. What you do is boil two potatoes with 2 cloves of garlic thrown in. Peel, then mash both the potatoes and the garlic. Mix in 2 tbsp of cream cheese, a tbsp of butter and a dash of salt. Indulge!
PS: If you stopped by the Burrito Bowl post earlier, you might want to consider a revisit. I've added all the missing recipes.
