Sorry, but we didn't find anything out of the ordinary with these potatoes. They just seemed like regular mashed potatoes to us. Why bother baking? I don't think I would make these again. I thot they would be something different.

I've made these and they are good.I put them in the crockpot and they stay good for hours.

I made these for my Christmas Eve dinner and my husband kept saying how much he loved the taste that they had. I used the potatoes with the skins and 4 ounces cream cheese. Thanks!
