"Mashed Potatoes mixed with caramelized onions, cream cheese and more. They are seriously addictive!" — Laura Cotnoir

potatoes, peeled and cubed
extra virgin olive oil
white onion, diced
salt to taste
light soy sauce
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
chicken bouillon granules
black pepper to taste
The ingredients sound a bit strange but it works! I left out the cream cheese, only because I realized I was out at the last minute, but it was still really good. It tasted a little like those french fried onions you put on green bean casserole. I will definitely make again (with cream cheese the next time).
This is one of those recipes that use a long list of ingredients in a vain attempt to create a complex flavor. Cream cheese + Sour Cream + Whipping Cream = Redundant Calories. Cut the creams down to one…I recommend sour cream to keep the potatoes creamy and not too dense. Cream cheese works well too…just choose one or the other. If you need to adjust the consistency, try a little milk. The sugar is pointless – there’s not enough to make even a slight flavor difference in so many potatoes. The chicken bouillon does make a nice flavor enhancer for potatoes, but if you use it, cut the soy sauce.
"OH MY GOD!!!!!" were the 1st 3 words out of about 5 peoples mouths when they tasted these today. What a hit. I doubled the recipe and there were almost no leftovers :) Thanks babybeeks.
I didn't have all the ingredients, for ex:whipping cream, parm cheese, parsley, but nonetheless this was amazing!! I loved them! this is definitely a no fail recipe! You wont have to follow it to the T. It's an awesome blueprint to add and remove to your own tastes. Excellent 5 stars I say!
I'm only giving this one 4 stars because there was just too much going on, flavor-wise. They were yummy, that's for sure - don't know about "addictive" though. I'll make them again, but I'll probably leave out a few ingredients, like the soy sauce and the chicken bouillon granules. They both added a lot of salt and I thought they were kind of unnecessary. Other than that, very tasty! Oh, and good news, you can make them ahead of time and reheat them just fine if you know you're not going to have time to make them the night that you need them.
The best mashed potatoes ever! I made them for my parents and in-laws and everyone loved them. I used half and half instead of whipping cream, because the store was out. They were so good, we had to lick the beaters so none would go to waste!
Dad-gum these are good..my husband and I scraped the bottom of the bowl!!! I had to use assagio in it, because I had run out of Parmesan! Fabulous anyway! Hats off to the chef!!!
These are now a tradition at my home. Its a little more work gathering the ingredients but this side dish might just out-shine whatever you are serving it with! By the way, caramelizing the onions takes time but they are heavenly!
