Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes

My mother-in-law's famous mashed potatoes.  No Thanksgiving feast is complete without them.

{What you need}
9 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced
1 stick unsalted butter at room temp
12 oz cream cheese at room temp 
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes in a large saucepan until tender. Drain, then place the potatoes in a mixer bowl.  Cut the butter and cream cheese into small pieces and add to the potatoes.  Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Beat in the sour cream.  Season with the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately or reheat in a buttered casserole dish at 300 degrees for 20 minutes, if you want to prepare them in advance.  Makes 8 portions.
