Yummy!!! You wouldn't know that these are low-fat!! I made this to serve one (with leftovers), using one very large potato and the rest as written. I chose to make them creamy/smooth using an electric mixer, so I added the chives at the very end. I love the flavor added by the chives and think I will add them to all mashed potatoes, so good!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for you win in the football pool, congrats!!!

Loved it! I used what we had on hand and it still turned out great - scallions instead of chives, chicken stock instead of milk. DELISH!

This has become a favorite. I used regular cream cheese instead of low-fat and added garlic the last time. Came out great! Thanks!
