I LOVE this recipe. It always gets great comments. I use 4 oz. cream cheese and 2/3 c. sour cream. Then I fold in by hand some shredded cheddar cheese. Outstanding! PS Don't use a mixer if you are adding the cheddar cheese-it turns your potatoes orange!
Made as-is in advance. Great flavor and easy to assemble.
Made as-is and ahead of time. Turned out great.
J have made this for 25+ years and everyone loves them. It's wonderful to make ahead, especially on a holiday (less clean up).
I make this recipe a day ahead and reheat at 350 for 45 min. covered or uncovered if you it slightly browned on top. You should have heard the teenage boys raving about the potatoes (of all things) on Thanksgiving. "Best mashed potatoes we've ever eaten"
