Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes

When the weather turns colder and the nights get longer, mashed potatoes reappear on our dinner table. Warm, luscious and comforting, Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes are a perfect side dish for any family dinner.

Twice Baked Potatoes are a favorite in my home. They can be made well in advance and with their silky texture and crispy crust, they are a crowd pleaser.

Instructions
  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with enough room temperature water to cover. Add salt to water.
  2. Bring to a boil and boil potatoes until they are fork tender.
  3. While potatoes are boiling, place butter and leeks in a sauce pan. On low heat, melt the butter, stirring occasionally to cover the leeks with butter.
  4. Continue heating on low until the leeks become soft. Remove leeks and reserve for another use.
  5. Add heavy cream and cream cheese to the butter, stirring until the cream is heated through and the cream cheese has melted.
  6. When potatoes are fork tender, drain potatoes in a colander and then return to the hot pot to dry any remaining moisture off the potatoes.
  7. Transfer potatoes to a very large bowl and gently mash using a potato ricer or masher.
  8. Add butter mixture and dill to potatoes and gently combine.
  9. Spray a 9" ceramic pie plate or casserole with cooking spray then spoon potatoes into dish.
  10. Gently press the back of a spoon into the potatoes and pull up to create peaks across the top.
  11. If making in advance, allow potatoes to cool completely. Wrap securely with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed.
  12. To twice bake: remove dish from refrigerator, remove plastic wrap and allow dish to come to room temperature - approximately one hour.
  13. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 40-45 minutes or until the potatoes rise and the edges and peaks turn golden brown.
