Yum, this made for lovely mashed spuds..I used a bit under 1 cup cheese & less marg. The onion flavour is very subtle, not too overpowering, a great way to use up the last of the dip in a container. Thanks for posting!

  5. Add milk, mixing well.
  6. Add margarine, salt (may not need it with the salt in the dip) and pepper.
