It's a cinch to jazz up instant mashed potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese, then cook and serve them from a slow cooker. For a special touch, sprinkle the perfect-for-party time potatoes with chopped fresh chives, canned French-fried onions or fresh grated Parmesan cheese.—Donna Bardocz, Howell, Michigan
