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.
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.
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!
If you want a new taste for mash potatoes this recipe is a winner! I made this recipe three time already, at Thanksgiving a made 10bs and it was all gone, they taste rich and smooth. 5 starr
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!
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.
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!
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.
