  • 8-10 red potatoes
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives chopped
  • 1 pinch Paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded


  • Cut the potatoes into cubes and place in a large stockpot
  • Fill with enough water to cover the potatoes and bring to a boil
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender
  • Preheat the oven to 350F when the potatoes are almost done cooking
  • Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, add all of the other ingredients (you can start to mix them now, but if you wait until the potatoes are in there it softens everything and makes it easier to mix)
  • When the potatoes are done, drain the pot then add the potatoes to the large mixing bowl
  • Use a potato masher to thoroughly combine everything
  • Spoon the potato mixture into a 9×13 glass baking dish and smooth with a rubber spatula
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, until the edges are bubbling
  • Serve warm
