Everyone who has tasted these creamy, cheesy potatoes asks how to make them. Since this comforting casserole bakes at the same temperature as my chicken bundles, I get it started in the oven and pop in the entree a little later. -Brad Moritz, Limerick, Pennsylvania

"Wow these were really delicious! A little firmer than I like my mashed potatoes though, so next time I might add some cream. But man are they good!"

"Made this for Easter & everyone loved it! I did not add the onion. Next time I will only add 1 teaspoon of the salt - it was definitely too salty for my taste. Based on the expression on my mom's face, it was too salty for her, too, but she was too polite to say so."

"I didn't peel the potatoes, so it gave the dish an earthy, hearty feel and taste. I did decrease the cream cheese by half and used 1% milk to moisten and cut calories."

"These are great, although I had to substitute buttermilk for the sour cream and after I baked them, they were a little too dry. I'm thinking with the sour cream that wouldn't be an issue. Still, really tasty."
