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, thanks Valerie! The only difference with mine was, I used minced garlic (jarred, fridge kind) and a little less cream cheese. I also added a little milk, just because I didn't want them too thick (although using Val's amount of cream cheese would have done a better job). Thanks again Valerie!

Burke loves it! Made this tonight for "Easter" dinner and am forwarding the recipe to my stepmother - the best cook I know. So easy and tasty. Yum yum yummmm!


Tastes like a warm (but mashed) potato salad. Has great taste, even though I used Fat Free cream cheese. Will definitely make again. I made as a side dish for baked crispy chicken and fresh steamed green beans. Went excellent together. Thanks Valerie, for a yummy alternative to mashed potatoes!
