What You Need

3
lb.  red potatoes (about 10 medium), cut into chunks
1

Make It

COOK potatoes in boiling water in large saucepan 15 min. or until potatoes are tender; drain.

MASH potatoes. Add sour cream, cream cheese and milk; mash until blended. Spoon into microwaveable serving bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate up to 2 days.

MEANWHILE, melt butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook 5 min. or until mushrooms are tender, stirring frequently. Spoon into bowl; cover. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise
You can still enjoy your favorite foods while keeping portion size in mind.
Make it Easy
You can peel the potatoes if desired - it's a matter of personal preference. But keep in mind that the peels add texture, nutrients and color to the dish.
Variations
Prepare as directed, using 2 pkg. (4 oz. each) sliced wild mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster and cremini. Or, substitute fresh chives for the thyme. Or, sprinkle with 4 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked and crumbled.
