    Thanksgiving Menu- Decadent Mashed Potatoes and Green Bean Au Gratin

    We made Decadent Mashed Potatoes very often at Sweets & Eats. Mainly because they never seized up and got hard. That is a boon if you want to make them ahead of time for a Take and Bake or make them the day before for a busy meal. It is full of calories with cream cheese, sour cream, butter and everything you dream about! But it’s Thanksgiving, so go ahead, splurge and enjoy!

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon potatoes peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces
    • 1/2 tablespoon salt
    • 1 3 ounce pkg cream cheese softened
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1/4 cup butter softened
    • 2 tablespoons whole milk warm
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Instructions

    • Place the potatoes and salt in a large stockpot and cover with cold water.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until fork tender.  Drain and place the potatoes in a large mixing bowl.  Add cream cheese, sour cream, butter and milk.  Beat at  medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve immediately or store covered in the refrigerator and heat in the oven until 165 F.

    As you know, I am not a fan of canned soups.  So Green Bean Casserole is not a highlight of our Thanksgiving meal.  Then I found the recipe for Green Beans Au Gratin.  It is the perfect substitute with a creamy, cheese sauce and it can be topped with canned onion rings if you wish.  Yes, it is a little more trouble but it is worth it,  Enjoy!
