The cream cheese adds a richness that turns ordinary mashed potatoes into extra yummy!

Really good recipe. Putting potatoes in crock pot while doing other things is extremely convenient.

I made this recipe for dinner guests this past weekend and it was a huge hit! I halved the recipe for a smaller crowd, and made it exactly as written, leaving out the additional optional melted butter. I will definitely make again....soooo good!

This recipe is SOOO Finger-Licking GOOD! I prepared them today, but I used less the amountof potatoes since it's basically just myself! I'd used 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper,1/4 cup melted butter, 4 russet potatoes which I'd cut in pieces then cooked up to 30 minutes until tender. I peeled potatoes after they cooked. I DID use the full 8-oz. cream cheese! I mixed in 1/2 chopped small onion into the potatoes, sprinkled with paprika and baked for 45 minutes in 1qt. casserole dish at 350o F. delowenstein
