      Excellent!! These were delicious!! I used the leftovers for my High Rise Biscuit/Breadstick recipe which uses mashed potatoes . I wanted to see if the dried onion flakes effected them. It didn't. They were also delicious.I love the idea that you can make, refrigerate and then bake. I liked the consistency and didn't add any more milk as suggested by a reviewer because my family will load them up with gravy, butters anyway so the consistency was great! I would not change a thing!

      A good easy side dish enjoyed by all. I scaled back for 3.5 and 3 of us devoured the lot - it was great to be able to make it up early in the day and bake later. Made for the DM's 85th birthday dinner, thank you TGirl,RN, made for Healthy Choices ABC.

      Loved these potatoes! I made a few changes by accident. I threw all of the butter in at once because I was in a hurry and didn't realize that I was supposed to save some of it out and then I didn't have any onion flakes so I used dried minced onions. Turned out great! Thank you!
