    Mashed Potato Bake - Perfect to Serve with Your Favourite Winter Protein Dish

    I used to make this potato dish years ago, but couldn't find the recipe
    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.
    Butter container,
    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
