Reviews for Party Potatoes
"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!"
"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."
"Our stand-by when needing a great potato recipe! I must disagree with Richard G on his finding it "puzzling" to use the cheddar cheese because without this ingredient, it is bland and not worth making. The cheese is what makes this dish tasty! I would not use the bread crumbs though, only because it masks the taste of the dish. The more cheese the better it tastes! Everyone knows that!"
"My family has been making party potatoes for more than 30 years. Our recipe is the same but does not use the bread crumbs and cheddar cheese, who's use I find puzzling because the cream cheese and sour cream make this dish rich and cheesy"
"Will defitnely try this recipe!!"
"These look GREAT; I plan on baking this for Thanksgiving. I wonder how they would do if I fix them maybe a week or two ahead of time and freeze and then thaw a couple days before Thanksgiving?"
"These are yummy and make the big day so much easier just to slip the already-made taters into the oven - I also add S&P and sprinkle with some onion powder - more savory that way - and I have never used bread crumbs when making this - doesn't seem to go with mashed potatoes."
"It easy and quick ..."
"I've made these for years. Instead of garlic powder I use onion powder. I have also added roasted red peppers, diced (nice at Christmas), green onions, chopped, shredded cheddar cheese. Any variation of these are good."
"This is one of my all time favorite dishes...especially for the holidays!!! I have a son that doesn't even like potatoes but will come back for seconds every time!!! They are also great to make ahead & bake later. They warm up well too :)"
"The combination of sour cream, cream cheese, garlic powder, and chives with the potatoes is awesome. I prefer using instant potatoe flakes it saves time and seems to work a little bit better than the whole potatoes. My boys love them."
"I love this recipe for using up left over mashed potatoes. The sour cream and cream cheese make the oh so creamy again and give it a fantastic flavor."
"I did not change anything! These are so rich and tasty."
