  1. Cook potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Return potatoes to pan, and stir in the cream cheese, butter, and garlic salt. Use a fork to mash potatoes, leaving them fairly lumpy. Fold in green onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste.



I love these potatoes. I'll be honest though, I didn't use this recipe, but I did throw together almost the exact same thing last night. It was so good I wanted to post it...but I didn't need to...

The best mashed potatoes I have ever had! I didn't even think I liked mashed potatoes until this recipe.
