Outstanding. I used yukon gold small potatoes left skins on, threw them in my Kitchen Aid along with the other ingredients. It couldn't have been easier and more delish!

Very, very good. I used red potatoes with the skins on & left out the chives. The cream cheese adds a really good flavor and creaminess, but these get really thick after sitting a few minutes. I might add a bit more half/half next time. Served with Recipe #109859 and Recipe #133821 for a great Sunday night meal.

I have made my mashed potatoes this way for a long time. They are fabulous.
