8 oz Cream cheese
6 Cups mashed potatoes
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder — finely chopped
1/4 cup onion
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon salt
Cook onion until soft but not colored. 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 needs to cook,
not just warm up.
May be frozen in freezer bag. Thaw and put in pan. It will be watery. Do
not pour off the
liquid- it will go back into the potatoes.
may use fresh garlic or dried onionsto =1/4 Cup
