Great recipe for special occassions, especially because it can be prepared the day before and just popped in the oven before serving. Low fat cream cheese and sour cream can be substituted without changing flavor or creaminess!

These weren't bad, they just weren't stellar. It was alot of effort for something ho-hum that is so high in calories and fat. I will not waste my time on them again.

I was not about to peel 5 lbs of potatoes so I left the skin on them and boiled a little longer so the skins were tender. Still came out great. I also sprinkled about a cup of shredded cheese on top. I added some crumbled bacon on top. The only reason why I did that is I was making bacon cheeseburgers so I fried up the entire batch of bacon. My entire family loved this and it went great with the grilled food and watching football! Will make again.

Yummy. I love red potatoes. They taste a lot like the ones you get at Applebees. I left the skins on mine since I was using baby reds. I will make again for sure.

We loved this. It's simple and the blend of flavors was perfect. I must admit it's appearance looked somewhat boring, so if you're going to serve it for company, I'd suggest perhaps sprinkling some sliced green onions or chives on top with a pinch of paprika after taking it out of the oven. My 15 year old told me "this is killer mom!"

This is the best potato recipe! It is to die for! I made it for my big family Sunday dinner and EVERYONE had seconds. Can't say it's very low-fat, but worth every calorie. It reheats wonderfully, too!

Hands down, the best mashed potatoes ever! I also used red potatoes, so I left the skin on. And, I used reduced fat cream cheese...delicious!!
