These creamy tasty potatoes can be made the day before and stored in the refrigerator until you're ready to pop them in the oven (I often do that). The garlic powder and chives add zip, and the shredded cheese adds color. —Sharon Mensing, Greenfield, Iowa

"Always a favorite, and so nice to have mashed potatoes prepped before the meal. Never was a fan of mashing them right before eating when I'm trying to get everything else done and on the table."

"This was delicious. At the suggestion of others, I omitted the bread topping, but I used all the other ingredients. I didn't see a reason to bake it so long, so I tried it for 40 minutes and it was fine. I think that it would be good to add the shredded cheddar on top then put it back in the oven for a couple of minutes. My cheese didn't really melt even though I put it on right after removing the dish from the oven."

"I've been using this recipe for years & the dish is always empty after we eat! I frequently turn it into a main dish by adding either browned & drained hamburger, diced ham, diced smoked sausage, or fried & crumbled bacon. It's very filling & flavorful, especially on cold winter nights!"

"WONDERFUL DISH! I did not have the chives but it turned out amazing. Every one in the family loved the Party Potatoes. We are going to make this for Thanksgiving and add a little crumbled bacon on top."
