Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes

This is a sort of put in what you want recipe. I like these potatoes because they can stand on their own, meaning they don't need gravy. The cream cheese gives it it's own rich flavor.

you need :
cream cheese
salt and pepper
maybe a little milk

For a dinner for 2-3, peel, cut, and boil 3 med. potatoes.
When potatoes are soft and cooked through, drain and mash. Once the potatoes are mashed to the consistency that you like, add 3-4 0z. cream cheese. The heat from the potatoes will soften the cream cheese. Mash the cream cheese into the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste (I usually add quite a bit). If the potatoes seem a little too thick, add a TINY bit of milk. Stir in milk. If still too thick, add a TINY more. Adding too much milk means it'll be runny and hence ruined (at least to me). I usually don't need to add any milk.
