Fat Potatoes

mashFat Potatoes

This is my family’s absolute favorite potluck dish–and if you want something that’ll stick to your ribs¬†and¬†clog your arteries, this is it!! I cook these for my family at the holidays because all the prep work can be done a day or two in advance, and then they can be popped in the oven or crockpot the day of dinner. If your feeling fancy, you can add bacon chives and cheese for fat baked potatoes. When I make them for potluck, there are never any leftovers.

These instructions are for a small batch. I usually make a double, or for my six-quart crockpot, 2-1/2 batches.


9 medium white potatoes91a3efe8e09712a8dd0bda03e65984e1
1 stick butter
8 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream


Peel and boil potatoes with a little salt in the water until potatoes are tender (just like you’re making mashed potatoes).

Drain potatoes and add butter, cream cheese, and sour cream and beat with electric mixer until smooth.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees (45 minutes if they have been made ahead and refrigerated), or cook in crockpot on high about 4 hours or on low for 6-8.

I’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love these!
