“Instead of adding butter and cream to my mashed potatoes, I add flavored cream cheese—usually chive and onion,” writes Margaret Manetta of Clinton Township, Michigan. “This really enhances the potatoes.”
These rich, buttery whipped potatoes are delicately flavored with Brie and fresh thyme—and likely to become a family tradition for special occasions. Thanks to Yvonne Starlin of Portland, Tennessee for the recipe.
My family loves potatoes and considers this dressed-up version a real favorite. Mouthwatering flavor comes from roasted garlic and rosemary. These fluffy, pleasing potatoes make a standout side dish for any meat.—Rita Wenrich, La Luz, New Mexico
Kids of all ages get a kick out of this recipe. I make it by mounding mashed potatoes into the shape of a mountain, putting a crater in the middle, and filling it with cheese sauce and drizzling some down the sides like lave. Then I broil it until it's bubbling and brown.—Beatta Robben, Grinnell, Kansas
