Mashed Potatoes Supreme

Our cooking group had such a fun potato theme this month! I was amazed with all the yummy potato dishes people come up with! It was a night to remember! :) I got this recipe out of a Simple and Delicious magazine, and I made a few changes. It was SO tasty! Doug said, "This is the ultimate potato dish!" You start looking at the cream, the cheese, the butter, and well, need I say more? :) It was delicious though. Hope you get a chance to try this one out!

Mashed Potatoes Supreme
3 lbs medium red potatoes, quartered
1 package (8 oz each) cream cheese, cubed
½ cup butter, cubed
½ cup half-and-half cream or milk
1 medium green pepper, chopped
4 green onions, thinly sliced
½ cup cooked ham, sliced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

· Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
· In a large mixing bowl, mash the potatoes. Add the cream cheese, butter and cream; beat until blended. Stir in the green peppers, onions, ham, salt, and pepper. Stir in 1/3 cup cheddar cheese and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese.
· Transfer to a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
