My husband and I had these for dinner tonight. They were great. My husband made them as directed not in the crock pot and it was easy to prepare. Will definitely make them again.
I made this for Christmas and unfortunately my family did not like them at all. The biggest complaint was that they were sticky. I don't know if I did something wrong but will not make they again.
This recipe came out fantastic, I made it just as directed. For those of you who insist on doing everything in the crock pot, it won't come out the same. Try it as stated, in the oven covered and you will get much better results!
I've been hearing about this recipe for years and decided to try it this Thanksgiving. I made them the day before and refrigerated. On Thanksgiving I started them off in the crock pot on high for a couple hours. STIRRING occassionaly is the key to the crock pot. After they were heated through a bit, I turned it down to low for a couple hours, stirring to keep the heat uniform. After checking for total warmth, I turned them off and they stayed nice and warm until time to be served. My only problem was they need a little more liquid, so I added little milk.
I have made this recipe a couple of times and use all of the ingredients as indicated. Once the potatoes are all mashed and mixed I have been putting them in a greased crockpot. I start warming them on low a few hours before. I find that the potatoes brown on the sides and bottom of the crockpot even though I have the temperature on low. Also, I find that the cream cheese & sour cream is a bit too heavy for the potatoes. I will be searching for another make ahead potato recipe.
