These were great - and with no butter too! I've been searching for a go-to mashed potato recipe and I think I just found it :) Also, I found it doesn't need to be baked, it tastes great without the last step.

My review is the same as Parsley's. Whether the cook chooses to use full fat sour cream and cream cheese or low fat, these mashed potatoes turn out rich and creamy. I also have a love of Yukon potatoes. Drizzled a bit of fresh chives from the herb garden on each serving. Thanks for posting. This recipe will be added to my Spud Powered cookbook, Dee. cg

I've made mashed potatoes similar to this in the past (with the cream cheese and sour cream) and they always come out creamy and smooth with just a hint of richness. Even if you use reduced-fat dairy products (which I did), you still get great results. These potatoes are sure to please everyone. Thanx for a winning mashed potato recipe!

Delicious. Especially like the onion salt as it gave it the taste of chives which I love with sour cream and potatoes.

Really good - I've used either sour cream OR cream cheese before, but never both. Both make this extra special. I also really like the onion salt - I love onions but my kids don't. Thanks!

This is exactly like I do my potatoes, too. You can't beat the Yukons for their creamy texture and I love the onion salt. I made these for my son's class twice and they loved them, too. I make my potatoes in a pressure cooker, which speeds up the cook time. Roxygirl

Wonderful Wonderful potatoes. So easy to make. I halved the recipe, made them the night before and baked them the day of the meal. Had visions of making potatoe cakes from the leftovers, but there was none left. Thanks for the great recipe.

Great creamy potatoes. I used russets because that's what I had on hand. Easy and good. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

Also, I will add that, being that,for the holiday season, we had onion sour cream, I used that rather than onion salt and sour cream solo. Topped with scallions after browning the top. Bob's your uncle!!!!

What an excellent flavor and so creamy! I loved this recipe and will definitely make it again and again. The only change I made was with the onion salt since I didn't have any. Instead I added 1 1/2 tsp salt and some garlic powder. Thanks for the great recipe!
Update: I made this again and added some chopped green onions and topped with shredded cheddar cheese before I put it in the oven and this was HEAVENLY!
