Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

3 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" chunks
1 TBSP cream cheese
1 TBSP butter or margarine
1/2-1 c low fat buttermilk
salt and pepper, to taste

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Cover with lid until water comes to a boil, and remove lid.

Cook 15-20 minutes until potatoes are tender when poked with a fork.

Mash potatoes with a masher, or put into a mixing bowl with remaining ingredients. Slowly add buttermilk while mixing until potatoes are desired consistency.

(NOTE: Do NOT try to whip them in the blender, they will come out very gummy)
