Reviews forCheesy Mashed Potatoes
"I have been making this dish for family gatherings since it was published in 2002. 15 years later, I still get requests."
"Wow these were really delicious! A little firmer than I like my mashed potatoes though, so next time I might add some cream. But man are they good!"
"The best darn cheesy mashed potato recipe the whole family can enjoy! Never have ANY leftover!!!"
"I made these to go with dinner tonight, an my husband has already requested that I make them more often! I'm thinking of playing with a couple different cheeses even. These potatoes were so creamy and delicious... Definitely a keeper!"
"Made this for Easter & everyone loved it! I did not add the onion. Next time I will only add 1 teaspoon of the salt - it was definitely too salty for my taste. Based on the expression on my mom's face, it was too salty for her, too, but she was too polite to say so."
"I didn't peel the potatoes, so it gave the dish an earthy, hearty feel and taste. I did decrease the cream cheese by half and used 1% milk to moisten and cut calories."
"this were a HUGE hit at our family Christmas gathering...will definitely make again!"
"These are great, although I had to substitute buttermilk for the sour cream and after I baked them, they were a little too dry. I'm thinking with the sour cream that wouldn't be an issue. Still, really tasty."
"Make these every Thanksgiving. They always go fast! Terrfic!"
