Potato Casserole

Hazel's Hot Dish Recipe of the Week

Potato Casserole

When I made this dish for Southern Fried Flicks With Hazel Smith, my producer Shane Caldwell and all the CMT working folks dug this dish. Even actor Randy Wayne, who doesn’t like potatoes as a rule, loved this.

6 or 7 large potatoes
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350°.

Peel, wash and slice potatoes. Cook in water in a saucepan until fork tender. Drain potatoes and beat in soft cream cheese. Add sour cream and butter, continuing to beat until creamy and smooth. Add onions, garlic and salt and mix well. Spoon into a buttered 2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before baking. Bake uncovered at 350° for 30 minutes.
