As a pastor's wife, I cook for crowds often. This dish is always a hit. My own family thinks the potatoes are a must with London broil or marinated grilled chicken breasts. I frequently prepare them for guests, too. The recipe is very adaptable, and the results disappear. —Michelle Grigsby, Beavercreek, Ohio


  • 3 pounds russet potatoes (about 9 medium), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry


  1. Place the potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil; cook for 20-25 minutes or until very tender. Drain well.
  2. In a bowl, mash potatoes and garlic with the cream cheese and butter. Add sour cream, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, garlic salt, onion salt and spinach. Stir just until mixed. Spread into a greased 2-qt. baking dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Top with remaining cheese; bake 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
