When making mashed potatoes, Helen B. of Northridge, California uses a bit of sour cream instead of butter, then mixes in chopped and sauteed mushrooms and onions. “They are scrumptious!” Helen declares.
Buttermilk and cream cheese lend a rich sour cream-like flavor to these wonderful whipped potatoes. The addition of chives makes this dish so attractive, you'll want to serve it at special-occasion dinners. —Bonnie Thompson, Rathdrum, Idaho
The first time I tasted this combination was 53 years ago at my mother-in-law's house. My husband assured me I'd love this side dish and he was right. I changed the recipe slightly and like to make it with the first crop of Vidalia onions.

I love potatoes…especially mashed. When I came up with this combination, it was declared a winner. I serve this as a side dish when I have pork as an entree, but it's great with any meat. —Rebecca Page, Pensacola, Florida
