Kittencal, I love all your recipes. I never go wrong if I pick a Kittencal recipe and this one is awesome. Also, I think this is what the other poster meant instead of "mike and right" this makes more sense - "the only thing I changed was added a little MILK and right before serving I added more butter." Threw me for a minute too.
Look no further for a mashed potatoe recipe these are it!
I did not make these; however, I did enjoy the finished product at my daughter's this Christmas. They are very creamy and delicious. Makes a big holiday day spread super easy as they were prepared the day before and refrigerated overnight. In place of the shredded cheese the finished product was sprinkled with paprika. A very attractive dish. Thanks Kitten.
OMG! These were soo good. What a time saver to be able to make these ahead of time and just warm up. Everyone enjoyed them, I think next time I might add a little milk but otherwise these were perfect.
My kids hate potatoes (unless they are french fried). They loved these though even asked for seconds. I used low fat cream cheese and sour cream and added a bit of 1% milk to make them a bit creamier, but still delicious. Even the leftovers a couple of days after were great heated up. Thanks for posting this recipe. I will be using it for years to come!
Amazing Potatoes! Thank you so much for sharing the recipie. We had these for Thanksgiving and my husband and I both agreed they were the BEST potatoes we ever had. I am making these this week for my husband to take to a dinner work party- I am sure they will be a HIT! Thanks so much!
Well, here's the scoop from Thanksgiving Dinner. My daughter, home from college for a few days, specifically requested Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes. Anyway, I found 2 of Kittencal's recipes that sounded yummy (Kittencal's Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes & Kittencal's Fluffy Mashed Potatoes) and I kind of mixed the 2 together. Basically I used the Kittencal's Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes but made the following changes inspired by Kittencal's Fluffy Mashed Potatoes and it turned out A+++! I used the following: 1 49 oz. can Fat Free Chicken Broth instead of water to cook the potatoes, 10 Yukon Gold Potatoes instead of 8 large Russet Potatoes, 8 oz. fat free cream cheese, approx. 1/3 cup sour cream (perhaps a little more), I did not have onion powder so I left this out and I didn't use the shredded cheddar cheese. Anyway, the family absolutely RAVED about them! Thanks so much Kittencal for making my daughter mashed potatoes what she really wanted!
These are the best potatoes! I will be making these from now on in place of my "regular" recipe. I made these to go along with Honey Mustard Roasted Pork Loin. So delicious! Thank you Kitten! Dinner was a delicious success!!!!
Apart from adding 1 chopped onion (in place of the onion powder) and 4 cloves of minced garlic sauteed until the onion had just softened and added to the potatoes in step 4, I made these potatoes exactly to the recipe. I used unsalted butter, and low-fat sour cream. I did top with paprika (which I love), but not with the cheese: seemed creamy enough without the cheese. I made this in 4 smaller dishes and at the end of step 6 put three of these in the freezer. One of these I've since brought out of the freezer at the beginning of the day, then proceeded with step 8 in the evening. Great make-ahead recipe; great stash-in-the-freezer to bring out when you need it recipe; and, when providing a meal for larger numbers, this will just be just be SO great in taking the pressure off at the time the guests are there! Thanks KITTENCAL for another super-star recipe! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
Wonderful mashed potatoes. We took them in to the nursing home for a delayed potluck Thanksgiving dinner for my 95 yo MIL and 8 others. Not a scrap left :( I did gild the lily a bit by tossing in some green onions (she loves them) and crumbled bacon but they were delicious before these add ins. You can make and serve these potatoes with confidence. Thanks Kittencal. (again)
