Like mixed in?
I usually add sour cream but I don't have any right now and was thinking maybe cream cheese would be good in it. I have no idea. Anyone ever had it?

I've never actually made real mashed potatoes before since my parents always made instant when i was growing up, but I was considering it the other day and came across a recipe that called for cream cheese in it so i guess its something people do.

usually when i dont have sour cream for something i wanna use it for i just use ranch dressing instead. its just as creamy but its also got a nice flavor to it.

I like mayonnaise. Haha. I'm a weirdo. I'm sure it would taste fine! then again I love cream cheese so I might be biased. lol

It's gooood. I've done it a few times, added in cream cheese and chives, makes it extra creamy and luscious. mmm

It's in my thanksgiving mashed potato recipe! Pioneer woman gave me the tip and I LOVE it.... You will need some liquid like milk too.

I usually always add milk to my potatoes
I ended up not even making them because I had no idea what to make with them! I thought maybe chicken but I had none defrosted. I will try with the cream cheese though soon!
