These aren't your ordinary mashed potatoes! You can also make the mashed potatoes the day before, refrigerate overnight, then bake them the next day.

Okay I cheated on this one!! Having last-minute guests and wanting a great meal instead of boiling potatoes and mashing them I found the instant mashed potatoes in my cupboard and made some according to the box that would serve 10. I then mixed the cooked mashed potatoes with the remaining ingrediants and baked as directed. The last 10 minutes I sprinkled cheese and bacon bits over the top and baked again until melted. GREAT GREAT potatoes. They were devoured! Thanks Beth...I'll do in the right way next time. Read More

Didn't care for this. It didn't seem to have much flavor. Maybe I did something wrong.... Read More

I made this to take to Thanksgiving dinner in 2001 and they were a huge hit. I was really upset when I couldn't find the recipe for this year as they were so tasty. I made sure to save it to my recipe box this time. These are great the cheese and sour cream add a real richness to the potatoes that you can't get with just butter and milk. My grandfather who hates both cream cheese and sour cream loved them. We just didn't tell him the truth about what he was eating. If you are looking for an easy way to do make ahead mashed potatoes this is it. They are great! Read More

My husband found this recipe and made it for us and it was the best mashed potatoes I have ever had! He added some green onions and grated colby-monterrey jack cheese on top, which was delicious and colorful! I made these about a week later myself because we both liked them so much. It makes alot though, so we invited company the second time! I served them with pork tenderloins. Read More

If you cover these potatoes with foil for half their baking time they do not dry out. I didn't have whole potatoes so I substituted a thawed bag of hash browns with peppers and onions. I steamed on the stove for 10 minutes then mashed. These were very good! The addition of the sour cream "and" cream cheese was a nice flavor. Will make again. Read More

I have been making these for years and they are fabulous! One of my most requested side dishes but definitely not one for those that are dieting. You can do the "lite" side of it but it is in no way the same. This is worth the extra calories.....believe me! Read More

I have made this recipes for holidays, big family get togethers and parties. Its a great hit! For parties, I usually end up making this a a couple of weeks in advance and freeze it. (Don't bake it until you need it) Believe it or not, it actually taste better. Read More
