c'mon now, this dish is easy and just needs a little tweaking...i used half and half instead of the water, added 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, a few bacon bits and for a quick side dish it wasn't too bad.
I thought these were delicious for boxed potatos- The rest of my guys..not so much; Hence mid grade review. If your family like plain jane potatos- this won't be for them.
I had to make a couple substitutions - I used onion powder instead of minced (my kids can detect the smallest onion piece) and I discovered that I didn't have the french fried onions, so I topped it with sliced Monteray Jack cheese. It worked out GREAT! all kids loved it and said they want it again. Leftovers for lunch today were yummy, too. I can't wait to try it with the cheddar fried onions next time! Oh, I used evaporated milk, too.
Using garlic flavored instant mashed potato instead of plain potato flakes seemed to add the right flavor kick for my family.
Great way to jazz up otherwise boring, lifeless box potatoes. What I like about this recipe is that you can adjust the seasonings to your own personal taste! Some people's bland is another's tasty! I didn't have canned fried onions so I quickly made my own. Served with the Easy Deviled Chicken from this site. Thanks for saving me the time of making homemade potatoes!
Very good, my husband asks for this over and over again. I think it would be better with fresh potatoes.
:-) double yum!
my husband compared it to some mashed potatoes from the cheesecake factory - which he referred to as the best potatoes he had ever had --
now these are his favorite - and mine, too.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
