We love potatoes “fixed” this way and you can do so many different variations. Great for holidays or just anytime.

7 or 8 large potatoes, peeled
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 to 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded or cheese of your choice
1 teaspoon paprika
Boil the peeled potatoes, drain and mash with the salt, butter, cream cheese, sour cream, milk, pepper, onion flakes and garlic.  Spread mashed potatoes into a sprayed casserole dish and sprinkle with shredded cheese and paprika.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes.  (Note:  You can add chopped bacon or ham, regular onion or green onion)  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!

    I have not tried it Beverly but see no reason why you couldn’t do both.

  2. Can you make this ahead of time? Say earlier in the day

  3. I have leftover mashed potatoes I’d like to use. How many cups would that be?

  4. Thank you for all your delicious recipes!

    I tried this a few months back, after seeing the recipe by FB. I loved it – Absolutely delicious!!! I live in Germany and all cheese types are not readily available…but cheddar is…works just fine!

  6. About what size casserole dish? i would love to make this for an event we are having at church.

  7. The Southern Lady says:

    Yes, you could do that Mark.

  8. I could go for some of those anytime!

    I had this kind of Mashed potatoes at a party in Indianapolis, IN several years ago, and believe me, it was the best mashed potatoes I ever had. Thanks Southern Lady Cooks. Very happy to finally get the recipe. LOVE IT.

  11. Are onion flakes dehydrated onions?

  12. We call that cheese and potato pie here in the UK, yum

  13. What a great variation…especially the onion flakes…. Thank you for posting!

  14. Is monteray jack a mild cheese or tangy coz we dont have that here in Australia so i need to find a substitute for it ?

  15. I could live on just mashed potatoes, especially this recipe!!

  16. I basically make this same recipe, but mix in a beaten egg and pimentos (and the cheese) to the potatoes before baking. They puff up nicely. My mother would always fix them this way, expecially for holidays.
