We (oops, I must say Bob- the kids wouldn't eat mine) always made a big pot of mashed potatoes once a week. The first night it was mashed potatoes. The second time they became this recipe. The third serving was fried potato cakes. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.

I modified this recipe to make one AWESOME side dish! First I made mashed potatos mixed with cream cheese sour cream salt pepper and a little bit of milk (my usual mashed potato recipe) and put them in the bottom of glass baking dish then I sauteed sweet onions in butter and poured the onion and butter mixture on top of the mashed potato layer then I topped with the american cheese.... YUMMY!!! Read More

This needed something. Made again and added garlic powder to the potatoes, used sharp cheddar, grated, and topped with crisp bacon pieces. Read More

Didn't read the review before I made and then made again like the other reviewer. I liked much better. The American cheese just doesn't do it justice. I added roasted garlic along with the green onions and mozzarella instead of cheddar. Thanks for the base. Read More

tasty albeit high in fat. i threw in some green beans and chicken broth which gave it some additional texture. i made this extra-quick by using the packaged refrigerated carton of mashed potatoes! Read More

This made a really good side dish. We had some leftover mashed potatoes that were made with milk Hellmann's and butter. I added about 1/8 cup of milk and mashed that in along with the green onion and sprinkled with a shredded Italian blend of cheeses. I will definitely make this again when there are leftover mashed potatoes. Read More
