Mashed Potato Casserole

Every family has their holiday favourites and this is definitely a staple around our Thanksgiving and Christmas tables. This dish can easily be made ahead of time making the holidays slightly less chaotic for the cook in your house.

8 large potatoes (approximately 5lbs)
a pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp butter (divided)
1 cup sour cream

Peel and cook potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and mash until smooth. Add 1 tbsp of butter and the remaining ingredients to the mashed potatoes. Beat until light and fluffy. Let cool slightly and place in a large casserole dish. Dot with the remaining 1 tbsp butter.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Remove from fridge 1 hour before cooking. Preheat oven to 350F. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until heated through.
