In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return to pot. Add 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the chives, the milk, cream cheese, butter, egg, salt and pepper; mash together until smooth.

Spoon into greased 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and remaining chives. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Uncover. Increase baking time to 55 minutes.)

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until browned and knife inserted in centre comes out hot, about 40 minutes.
