“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.
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
I enjoy entertaining and always look for recipes that can be made ahead of time. I got this comforting potato recipe from my mother-in-law. It's wonderful because I can prepare it the night before. It contains basic ingredients that everyone loves like milk and cheddar cheese.
