Reviews for Party Potatoes
"Awesome! I did use garlic instant potatoes and added a little more garlic. Fresh chives are best in this one!"
"Good, but a little to much of a sour cream taste for us."
"yet another tasty looking yummy heartwarming side. oh yah, I'll be making this for a family gathering soon. I'll be bumping up the spices however as this family likes biiiig flavors, thanks for sharing."
"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."
"Yummy recipe! You can use cornflakes instead of bread crumbs."
"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!"
