    Very tasty and dense/gooey mashed potatoes. I might chill with the cheese next time to keep it fluffier.

    I cut recipe it in half. Left the potato skins on. Turned out perfectly. Beat for only 15 seconds...otherwise it would have been too creamy. The cream cheese adds nice flavor. Next time I’ll sauté and add minced garlic.
