I used reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat sour cream. I did also add a good amount of fresh snipped chives. I served these with salisbury steak--the family ate almost the whole thing in one sitting. Delicious!
I made these for our Thanksgiving in September gathering and well, let's just say.....what is not to like? You obviously don't make these if you are counting calories - you do make them if you are looking for a great make ahead, full of flavor, delicious side dish to any special meal.
This the perfect way to have the mashed potatoes done ahead of time for Thanksgiving!!! LOVE the creamy, rich flavor. Will definitely make this again. Thank you~
I followed the recipe pretty much exactly as written and used the towel under the lid trick, but after putting these into the crock pot, they turned to thick soup. Delicious soup, but still soup. No one complained, and in fact, they all complimented me on how delicious they were. The only deviations I made from the recipe was to mash the potatoes with a manual potato masher instead of whipping with an electric mixer, so they were more chunky than whipped. Plus, I prepared the potatoes the night before Christmas and refrigerated them overnight. Maybe that is where the excess moisture came from. This is a total winner taste-wise as a mashed potato recipe, so I'll continue to work with it. The benefit of last minute prep prevention is worth further experimentation with this recipe.
Perfect for Thanksgiving. I used yellow potatoes instead of red,and I should not have. Next time I will use the red, or a firmer potato. They came out a little runny because they just weren't firm enough.Overall the dish was really good and a huge stress reliever because I didn't have to boil/mash the potatoes and try to get the turkey out all at the same time. I will make them again for next Thanksgiving.
