1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
onion, finely chopped
1/2 (6 ounce) can
French-fried onions, crushed
I doubled the potatoes, and omitted the eggs. Then added 1 heaping tablespoon butter and 3 heaping tablespoons sour cream while mashing. I also added dried parsley and a cup of shredded cheddar cheese while mixing. Before topping with the fried onions, I covered the potato mixture with more shredded cheddar. There were none left!!( this made a 9x13 ) My family is begging for more already.
This is an easy recipe to make. My husband liked it but it wasn't so popular with the kids. I think the eggs give this make ahead potato recipe a fluffy airy texture. Like some of the other reviews, I added some garlic for a little extra flavor. I have a similar potato recipe without eggs that has cream cheese and sour cream. As a matter of personal taste, I'll probably stick with that one in the future but this one has the potential to be a big hit if you like a really fluffy texture. The french fried onions on top are a nice extra that I will try out the next time I make my usual recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
This was fantastic... everyone asked for more, even the kids! I did as others suggested and added a bit of garlic and some grated cheddar cheese.
WOW!!!! That is all I can say about these potatoes. The best I've ever had Will Make Again and Again Thanks........
Everybody really enjoyed these, I thought it went a little overboard on onions, so next time I may use half of a raw onion. I also make a recipe similar to this with just mashed potato and cream cheese, which is comparable. I also added some fresh parmesan cheese, I would make this again.
I have been searching for a good "make ahead" mashed potato recipe. THIS IS IT! I followed the recipe as stated except I added garlic but you could easily omit the chopped onion and the Durkee onion topping. They were creamy and not at all dry like so many make ahead recipes. A definte keeper.
I have made these 2 times in the last 2 weeks. This is a fantastic recipe.My kids will even reheat this and eat it for an after-school snack. couldn't get them to touch plain mashed potatoes once refridgerated. YUMMY!!!!!
Great recipe! Potatoes were very smooth and creamy. I used 5 lbs. of red potatoes and I boiled several cloves of garlic with the potatoes and mashed the garlic in with the potatoes. My daughter, who isn't much of a potato eater, couldn't get enought of them. I will definitely make these again!
