Grandpa’s Party Potatoes
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 50 min.
This is the only mashed potato recipe I use. My family fights over it and even eats it cold. It's always on our holiday menu.
Delicious, great for a gathering where you need the convenience of make ahead dishes. The onion dip and cream cheese turn plain mashed potatoes into a decadent gourmet dish
My family of 12 LOVES these
I have found with most of the day-before potato recipes that the amounts of extra ingredients (sour cream, onion dip, cream cheese, etc.) are just fine regardless of how many extra potatoes are used - I have used sometimes a ten-lb. bag of potatoes without adjusting the other ingredient amts. and still get the full extra good flavor - I think making the day prior and leaving overnight in the refrigerator is what distributes the flavors real well.
I found this recipe in one of the Taste of Home Thanksgiving magazines. It called for 8 - 9 cups of potatoes. I measured out 2 - 1/2 lbs of potatoes using a kitchen scale. The consistency of the final product turned out slightly thinner than what I like, so next time I will measure out 3 lbs. Other than that, the potatoes were excellent! Loved the taste the french dip added to them. A new favorite for me & my family!
Our family loves this! It is so easy to make and a great dish to have when company comes over.
This was excellent. No leftovers on this dish.
I made this for a dinner party and the men went crazy over it. Probably loaded with calories but certainly impresses. Very easy too since I could make the day before and pop it in the oven an hour before we eat.
Very easy to make. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and received lots of compliments. I used 5 pounds of (unpeeled) Yukon Gold potatoes. It makes a 13 x 9 cake pan full.
I used regular sour cream since that is what I had in refrig. I was wondering if this would freeze well?
