Christmas potatoes are only made on Christmas day mainly because they are so incredibly high in calories and terribly decadent. Your arteries will slam shut just reading this recipe! They are absolutely delicious though. I do make sure there are extras for the next day's leftover meal...

5 lbs of red potatoes
1 - 8 oz block of full fat cream cheese
4 large tbsp of butter
1/2 - 1 cup sour cream
1 tsp salt
Peel potatoes, cook until tender and mash.
Add cream cheese, sour cream and butter and continue to mash until nice and smooth but not sticky or gummy.
Serve with a dollup of butter and some chopped parsley to garnish the top.
