    Chris from Kansas's Note:

    These three-cheese mashed potatoes can be made up to two days ahead up to the point of baking. I adapted the original recipe to make it a little healthier. They are convenient and delicious.

      I made these for Christmas dinner with a prime rib for friends and family and they were really good. I will certainly make these again! Thank you!

      This is great! Made it for a pot luck at work (skipped all the low fat stuff and went with regular), and I know it says it serves 24, but 10 hungry guys finished it off as a side with a turkey dinner!

      These potatoes are the best! I even forgot the parmesan cheese, and the taste was wonderful. I used fat free sour cream, and the lower fat cream cheese, and it didn't seem to affect the taste at all, so creamy and good! I put the potatoes in a greased crock pot, and cooked on low for about 3 hours. Thanks for a great recipe that I'll be using again. Hazeleyes
