Make Ahead Company Mashed Potatoes

Everyone has their version of this casserole so I thought I would add mine to this blog! So GOOD TOO!

8 Large Potatoes Peeled & boiled until soft!
1, 8oz. Cream Cheese Softened
1 Stick of Butter Softened
1 Cup Sour Cream
2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella  Cheese
1 TSP Salt added to the potatoes while boiling
1 TBS Chopped Chives
2 TSP Minced Garlic
1 TBS Parsley
1 TSP Pepper I use white pepper
Paprika to sprinkle over the top!
Grease a 9x13 casserole dish. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until soft. Drain well & mash. Add the cream cheese & mash again. Add butter, sour cream & seasonings & mash ( I use my electric mixer so these are really whipped potatoes! Pile loosely in the casserole & cover with aluminum foil & freeze until needed. Thaw & sprinkle the top with parsley, paprika & more chives if you desire! Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until lightly browned on top.   DELICIOUS! You may leave out the shredded cheese or switch it up with Cheddar or Swiss. Add bacon bits to the potatoes to jazz this up ! ENDLESS OPTIONS!!
