I just needed to get some idea for the ratio of milk, to butter, to cream cheese etc
So I googled it and found this version, on a website called Real Simple
You can prepare ahead, which makes it perfect when you have friends coming over
It is so delicious,
It's attractive cooked in a souffle dish
Or on this occasion
I spread this over 4 different containers
Some for tonight’s dinner the rest going into the freezer for a later date
That’s up to you
This amount can feed 6 normal people, 4 greedy
Fluffy Mashed Potatoes
1 kg Agria or any other (Mashing) potatoes (about 5 medium),
peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup whole milk, at room temperature
125 gms cream cheese, at room temperature
125 gms unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into pieces,
plus more for the baking dish
1 spring onion finely chopped
Sea salt and black pepper
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
Heat oven to 200C.
Bring the potatoes to the boil
turn down and simmer, cover, and cook until very tender, 18 to 22 minutes.
Strain and return the potatoes to the pot.
Add the milk, cream cheese, butter,
Season with Sea salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper to the potatoes and mash until smooth.
Add spring onion
Fold in the eggs; transfer to a buttered 8-by-8-inch or other 2-quart baking dish.
Or as in my case, on this cook
Spread between different containers
Bake until set and golden, 25 to 30 minutes (or 40 minutes if refrigerated before baking).
I was so eager to get into it, I forgot to take the photo
This will give you an idea.It's very fluffy, melt in the mouth
