When I came across this recipe, all I could think of was the scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Yes, I know he was making Devil’s Tower. And yes, I know that Devil’s Tower isn’t a volcano. But who didn’t make a volcano out of their potatoes after seeing that film?
12 medium potatoes, boiled and drained
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 cup chives
1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine
1 cup sour cream
Combine all ingredients and beat with mixer until smooth. Place in casserole and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
