    MissJennifer's Note:

    I adapted this dish from an online community to please my tastes. You can also use sour cream if you don't have cream cheese on hand. For quickness I also use minced garlic from a jar. I love garlic pepper salt, you should be able to find this but if not you can add them individually.

      I really liked the addition of the cream cheese in this dish, but the potato and peas made it mushy (the potatoes get mashed with the extended cooking time to make this and gave it a gooey texture that wasn't appealing to us). If I made it again, I would remove the peas and potato, and I'd increase the cream cheese because it added a wonderful flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe, MissJennifer. Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.
