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

"This was a good recipe."

"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."

"Could you put this in a crockpot instead of baking?"

"I've always made these with a container of sour cream and chive chip dip and then cheddar cheese on top. Great and very easy!"

"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."
