"Delicious recipe! I made 1/3rd a recipe for the Cook's Corner ingredient/pantry challenge. I changed just one thing using olive oil instead of butter. I made my own spreadable cream cheese by microwaving regular and adding chives. Definitely a keeper!!!"

"Yummy! This was so nice. Loved the flavoured cream cheese in it. A definite winner for us. This is certainly one of the best potato recipes I have had. Thanks for a fantastic recipe! Didn't change a thing - perfect!"

"These are excellent mashed potatoes. I did peel maybe half of them but otherwise followed the recipe as written. It was a nice change for our Thanksgiving dinner."
