I think I did it wrong. I used my stand mixer to mix it but it didn't turn out creamy, still very chunky. After I baked it I had my skins swimming in butter. I guess you need to make sure you mix it a lot. I also was unsure as the amount of onion. I used 1/4 of a yellow onion and it is very oniony and I had doubled the batch. So it doesn't take much onion. Maybe next time I will hand mash the potatoes. I wanted this to work. I guess the moral is don't make a big batch until you know it will turn out.
I tried these with a friend as part of a freezer meal line up. We realized too late that we were missing the parmesan cheese so we left it out. It didn't matter, they were wonderful. Oh the smell in the kitchen was scrumptious too. I bought the potatoes at Sams, they were very large. I took home 8 for my freezer and later realized my husbands birthday was on Saturday. I just popped them out of the freezer the night before and heated them before the guests arrived. I sliced them in half. I received lots of compliments and no leftovers. Thanks Kittencal!!!
I have to say these tasted as if they were made that day. And even better because I didn't have to be in the kitchen for hours that day! And I have more in the freezer for next time! Thanks Kit for a keeper (again!)
Kittelcal, all of your recipes rock, but this one was especially good! I cut the potatoes in half, and subbed some garlic ( in the garlic press) for the onions. I also used extra sharp cheddar...they were delicious! I can't wait to see how they do in the freezer..
Very Good!!! Freezes Nicely!!! Only thing I did differently was left out the green onions but only because I don't care for onions in general. Thanks for the great recipe!
My family loves these! I made as directed, but I cut the potatoes in half instead of cutting off the tops, then filled each half, which is a perfect portion as a side dish for us. Thanks yet again Kittencal!
Used 6 potatoes. Probably added an extra 2T of butter and I also cooked up 5 strips of hickory smoked bacon that I needed to get rid of. I'm making these to freeze for my BFF who just had a baby and from the taste of the filling, these are going to be excellent!!!
I made this via freezer method. It works out great. I take it out of the freezer in the morning and when I get home from work pop it in the microwave until hot. Yum works perfect and tastes great! Thanks.
Kitten, I made these for Christmas Eve dinner for the family. I was a little nervous because we are a "tater" family and I wasn't sure that frozen, pre-made potatoes would go over. I needn't have worried...nobody guessed that I hadn't slaved over them that day. A real keeper I will make again and again!
I made these while I was pregnant so I would have something to eat when I the baby came, good idea on my part! Great recipe on Kittencal's part!
