Excellent. Might mix in a little milk also to make more creamy and some salt and pepper to taste of course. Sometimes food just doesn't have to be healthy so lighten up ISSA. Read More

Of course these are going to be delicious. After all they DO have four sticks of butter in them! Perhaps a more accurate name would be Cholesterol Casserole?!?! Read More

These were really good mashed potatoes. The cream cheese is a nice extra touch all they needed for finishing was a little salt and pepper. My husband likes these much better than mashed potatoes with milk. Read More

We call these twice a year potatoes - well this year we got an extra batch! For Christmas and Thanksgiving I do the whole 10 lbs of taters - all the cream cheese and all the butter! Whoa! They are good. For this review I scaled it back and hubby thought it was his birthday! Delicious - decadent and oh so good. Read More

Quite tasty if I do say so myself. I sort of 1/4'd the recipe and added milk. Less butter and more cream cheese. I do love good mashed potatoes. Read More
