Okay, I cheated on this one!! Having last-minute guests and wanting a great meal, instead of boiling potatoes and mashing them, I found the instant mashed potatoes in my cupboard and made some according to the box that would serve 10. I then mixed the cooked mashed potatoes with the remaining ingrediants and baked as directed. The last 10 minutes, I sprinkled cheese and bacon bits over the top and baked again until melted. GREAT GREAT potatoes. They were devoured! Thanks Beth...I'll do in the right way next time.

Didn't care for this. It didn't seem to have much flavor. Maybe I did something wrong....

Served this with Thanksgiving dinner-it's a nice twist to traditional mashed potatoes.

I made this to take to Thanksgiving dinner in 2001 and they were a huge hit. I was really upset when I couldn't find the recipe for this year as they were so tasty. I made sure to save it to my recipe box this time. These are great, the cheese and sour cream add a real richness to the potatoes that you can't get with just butter and milk. My grandfather who hates both cream cheese and sour cream loved them. We just didn't tell him the truth about what he was eating. If you are looking for an easy way to do make ahead mashed potatoes this is it. They are great!

My husband found this recipe and made it for us and it was the best mashed potatoes I have ever had! He added some green onions and grated colby-monterrey jack cheese on top, which was delicious and colorful! I made these about a week later myself because we both liked them so much. It makes alot though, so we invited company the second time! I served them with pork tenderloins.

If you cover these potatoes with foil for half their baking time, they do not dry out. I didn't have whole potatoes so I substituted a thawed bag of hash browns with peppers and onions. I steamed on the stove for 10 minutes then mashed. These were very good! The addition of the sour cream "and" cream cheese was a nice flavor. Will make again.
