De­li­cious pota­toes

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - Front Page -

HAR­VEST has just fin­ished here and dur­ing har­vest I served this potato recipe (not your av­er­age mashed spuds).

I was asked by a few peo­ple for the recipe so thought I’d share it in the Ru­ral Weekly.

WHAT YOU NEED

■ 8 large pota­toes, peeled and quar­tered

■ 1 pack of cream cheese, soft­ened

■ 1 cup of grated cheese

■ cup of sour cream

■ 1 chopped onion (raw)

■ 1 egg

■ 2 tea­spoons salt

■ tea­spoon pep­per

■ Ad­di­tional grated cheese, op­tional.

Place pota­toes in a large saucepan, cover with wa­ter.

Cover with a lid and bring to the boil.

Cook for 20–25 min­utes or un­til very ten­der; drain well.

In a mix­ing bowl, mash pota­toes.

Add cream cheese, reg­u­lar cheese, sour cream, onion, egg, salt and pep­per.

Beat with elec­tric mixer un­til fluffy.

Trans­fer to a greased bak­ing dish.

Cover and bake at 180 for 40–45 min­utes or un­til heated through.

Sprin­kle with ad­di­tional cheese if de­sired. Serves 12.

I served it with ris­soles and other veg­eta­bles.
