These potatoes never disappoint being made the way I have done for years. I use 5 # Yukon Gold. One Pint of Sour Cream; 8 oz cream cheese (Not whipped) 1/4 cup unsalted butter and proceed pretty much as recommended. I've never done the chives but that would be OK, too! I do not understand the commentary below from drichards1neorrcomj. There is no garlic in the original recipe so that is confusing ?? I also have made, frozen and cooked right from the freezer for about 70 - 75 minutes. This is a great recipe to take with for someone else dinner. Bake at home and put in an insulated tote for your host!

Sound great, but no garlic in my mashed potatoes please. I hate garlic in mashed potatoes. It becomes the star of the dish and they taste dirty to me. This recipe need not be ruined by that addition.

These are creamy and rich. The first sour cream and cream cheese add a tang and creaminess. I could easily make a meal with just a big bowl of these.

I have been making these for almost 20 years. I use several cloves of roasted garlic, mix everything together put in a well buttered casserole cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days. We eat these for Christmas dinner, my family calls them Christmas potatoes. I take them out an hour before dinner to come to room temperature. I sprinkle some grated sharp cheddar and a little Parmesan during the last 15 minutes of baking. The leftovers make awesome potato pancakes!

Sounds tasty.I'm a bit confused though. It says "can be made ahead, refrigerated and then popped into the oven just prior to dinnertime." Baking for 35-40 minutes does not sound like "just prior to dinnertime" to me. I think of "JUST PRIOR to dinnertime" as something closer to 15 minutes. Are you suppose to boil the cubed potatoes, mash, add and combine the ingredients, then refrigerate it, and then bake the whole dish 35-40 minutes when you want it?

I have been making these potatoes for 20 years. I call them Snowy Potatoes, they're always everyone's favorite. If they seem a little dry, you can add a little half and half, and if you use white pepper it keeps them nice and white.

I've been using a recipe similar to this (mine includes 4 cloves minced garlic cooked w/potatoes, 8 oz. cream cheese & 1 C sour cream, 6 Tbs, butter) so highly recommend you try the recipe! My grandchildren request it at every family meal!

I chose to try this recipe for thanksgiving because I could make it the night before. I made exactly as directed. The potatoes were good, but a little dry for my family's taste. We prefer a creamier potatoe, but they were not bad and easy to put together.
