You can use plain or herbed cream cheese.

Tips

Chives can be substituted for the green onions.

This was excellent! The only change I recommend is waiting 10 minutes or so to add the green onions on top. As you can see from the picture mine got a little too brown in the last 10 minutes. Next time I might add some crumbled bacon but it was still excellent as written. Read More

I agree with Kel - nothing in here about mashing the actual potatoes in the pot and when they are added to the other ingredients. Sounds like a good recipe but it's missing a step or two! Read More

I made this the day before serving it. I wanted mash potatoes but didn't want to be stuck in the kitchen when company was here! It was good but not great. I prefer my potatoes a little creamier. I would try a little extra milk/butter/cream cheese next time. I did make the recipe as written with the only changes being I added more cheese on top and I didn't use the green onions. Read More

This was delicious and I like make ahead dishes but since it is so very rich I won t make it too often. I skipped the cheddar on top as it seemed unnecessary. Read More

I made this as a replacement to the mashed potatoes my ex wife used to make for Thanksgiving. It turned out great but that may have been too much garlic. I liked it but a couple of people commented on the strong garlic flavor. I told them that garlic was the first word in the name and we laughed. I'll lighten it up a bit next time they are here but otherwise it's going to stay like it is. Read More
