Loved it! It takes about 1 3/4 hours to prepare and bake, including boiling & mashing the potatoes. I added 3 yellow onions, chopped and fried in 2 Tbsp butter. Surprisingly, I found it needed a little salt. I hadn't added any while boiling the potatoes or noodles as I thought the cream cheese, cheddar and bacon bits would make it salty enough. Served it with sour cream, yum!

I made this the other night for my boyfriend and his family, it went over very well. The thing I noticed is that it needs a little more flavor. I added a few cloves of garlic. I also thought that it would be better if you added milk/butter & salt.pepper to the mashed potatoes. I want to make this again, but I'm going to change up the recipe a little bit.

I made this recipe last night. I used instant mashed potatoes because I was feeling lazy. I couldn't find Herb and Garlic cream cheese so I just used garlic cream cheese. I also used french fried onions instead of green onions. My husband thought this recipe was very good. Two children also enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty salty but otherwise very good. Next time I make it, assuming I use instant potatoes again, I will omit the salt called for on the box. The potato mixture does not spread easily across the noodles but perhaps using thinner potatoes would solve that problem.
