After your family tastes this recipe, they will never plain mash potatoes again. The cream cheese and sour cream add so much flavor!—Sheila Lake, Mission Valley, Montana


  • 10 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups crushed butter-flavored crackers (about 45 crackers)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain and mash. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, onions, salt and pepper; beat until well blended.
