    I don't remember where I got this recipe, but it has become one of our favorites. You can cover any leftover potatoes and refrigerate or freeze. Reheat quickly in the microwave, adding a little milk for desired consistency.

      These were so easy! I loved that about this recipe for our Christmas Eve dinner. We really enjoyed them too! Only difference I would make is next time add a little butter the last 20 minutes or so of cooking to make them a little creamier but not quite as thick. The taste is terrific! Thanks so much for sharing!

      This recipe is awesome! Very simple to make. I accidentally added the whole tub of cream cheese and it was still wonderful.

      These were simple and tasted amazing! I only had one pound of red potatoes so I divided the recipe into thirds and it turned out great. I also only had regular cream time I will make sure I try the cream cheese with chives and onions. DH kept saying these are awesome potatoes! Definitely a keeper in our house! thx!
