I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. Mashed potatoes can be so boring sometimes and this adds a lot of flavor and crunch.

  1. Boil potatoes until tender and then mash.
  2. Mix onion, cream cheese, sour cream and cheddar cheese in with potatoes (you can add a little milk if it gets too thick--you want it to be really creamy).
  3. Spread mixture into a rectangle pan and bake in 400° oven for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly around the edges.
  4. Top with the French's onion the last 5 minutes in oven.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

Really good recipe but there is no salt in this recipe and, IMHO, potatoes need salt. Other than that, fantastic recipe. Thanks for sharing.

This recipe was outrageous!!! I made it one night to spice up some mashed potatoes and my boyfriend couldn't get enough of them and I got a bunch of "yummy's and ohhh's" from him. Thanks! Definately recommend. Oh did add some fresh parsley. :)
