8 oz Cream Cheese
6 C mashed potatoes
1 t salt
?? C onion, finely chopped and cooked until tender but not colored
?? C butter or margarine
1 C Sour Cream
?? t garlic powder
Mix all together. Bake at 350 in buttered shallow pan until lightly
browned, just yellowing in spots and tanning edges 40 ???50 minutes. More
brown is
better than less. A shallow dish is best. Like a cake pan. You don???t want a
thick layer. The cheese need to cook not just warm up.
May be frozen in freezer bag. Thaw and dump in pan. It will be watery. Do
not pour off the liquid- it will go back into the potatoes.

I have used fresh garlic, dried onion, etc. The recipe is very forgiving
in quantities.
