I get requests for this recipe every Thanksgiving but I've made modifications. I usually double everything except the egg cream cheese and onion. Even doubling the recipe I find that half an onion is plenty even for onion lovers. I've also substituted sour cream for the cream cheese with great results. Read More

This was ok. I did use less cream cheese and added little chunks of montery jack but the onions were a little crunchy inside...which made my kids notice them. The potatoes were kinda runny. It wasn't bad but I won't make it again. Read More

Thank you for making me a star at my Easter Dinner. Everyone loved this dish. I did change a few things I didn't add the flour. I used flavored cream cheese green onions added crumbled bacon. I also put a layer of grated cheddar cheese along with the French Fried Onions on the top of the casserole - too many calories for everyday but absolutely fantastic for a holiday dinner! Read More

Oh my....how good was this?! We loved your dish Colleen! I didn't have quite enough cream cheese so I made up the difference with low fat sour cream however I did double the potatoes but nothing else. I didn't see the need for the flour or for the onion ONLY because I felt that the fried onions would work even better not only as the topping but mixed in as well and it did. I added garlic and onion powders to the mix too. This was awesome girl and I thank you for submitting your recipe! Read More

Quick and easy! Light and fluffy! I used leftover Yukon Gold mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner and following the advice from another reviewer doubled everything except the cheese (I used Neufchatel) onion and egg. I didn't have fresh onion so I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder which worked great because my kids don't like to see onion. I also didn't put the french onions on the top. I did forget the flour but I don't know that it made a difference. I also added about 1/3 c real bacon chunks. I know that made a difference! My 13-year-old son had thirds! I think it would be good with green onions or a touch of parsley to add color. Read More

We made this the day after Thanksgiving as a way to use up some smashed potatoes. We used a slightly higher potato to egg ratio and scaled up the recipe. The mashed potatoes already had cheddar and bacon in them but we added some scallions cooked ham and a little extra cheddar and baked it in one of those huge foil turkey pans (also a Thanksgiving leftover!). We used up all the potatoes and the casserole disappeared almost instantly! Read More

What a delightful change from the usual mashed potatoes. I kept everything the same except I doubled the potatoes. I think it would be too cream cheesy with only 2 cups potato. Definately a keeper. Read More

Excellent recipe. However I did modify it slightly. I did not use the chopped onion because I just knew my kids would not like it that way. I double the potatoes and the cream cheese but left all the other ingredients the same amount. It was very light fluffy and delicious. Read More

Tip: Just eat less of this delicious offering if you are worried about calories. Also if you beat the potatoes too much you will release more starch and they will become gooey. So limit the beating of the potato by mixing other ingredients first and folding into the potatoes. Try it and it will be even better. Smile! Read More
