    In another thread which Darude started, we discussed recipes to make ahead. I was away from the computer for a day or two but wanted to add this one. Blessings to you. Jen102

    5 lbs. or 9 large potatoes
    2-3 oz. packages cream cheese (or use 6 oz of the softened kind in the tub)
    1 C. sour cream
    2 tsp. onion salt or powder
    1 tsp. salt (may omit if used onion salt)
    1/2 tsp. white pepper
    2 Tablespoons butter or margarine.

    Cook potatoes as you would for any other mashed potatoes. Mash potatoes, add other ingredients and beat well with electric mixer. Cool, cover and refrigerate. To use, place desired amount in a greased casserole dish. Dot with butter and bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes 8 cups or 12 servings. Freezes well but let thaw before baking. For variation, garlic salt may be used instead of onion salt. A whole batch will fit in a 9x13 in. greased baking dish. These may be used any time up to 2 weeks when kept refrigerated.

    I have used this recipe several times and everyone just loves it.
    When I serve it I offer small bowls of "baked potato toppings" to go with it..and that is a big hit with everyone.
    I offer bacon bits, chives, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
    UHMMMM..makes me want some right now.
