With five kinds of dairy these are definitely not of the “simple, classic” variety, but they are of the “what the heck are in these?! THIS IS AMAZING!” variety. And once they come out of the oven with that buttery crispy top, you’ll want to sit down at the table with the skillet in front of you and horde them all for yourself.

Dinner then Dessert TIPS I’ve made these potatoes twice in the last month and the second time I minced up about 5 cloves of garlic that I sauteed in the butter that gets mashed into the potatoes. Holy garlicky amazingness. YES! Make it once the normal way, make it a second time kicked up with garlic. Then hurry back here and tell me which one you loved more!

  1. Made this the other night with the chicken thigh osso bucco and there were delicious. Going to make them tonight with Julia Child’s Beef Bourginon.

  2. A question about this delicious looking potato dish. Does it do well if refrigerated for a few hours between assembling and baking or should it be baked right away? Thank you.

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe, I am going to make it and I just know that I will love it. Do you know what kind of wine would go well with this dish? 🙂

  4. These look incredible! I’ve always wanted a little crunch/crisp in my mashed potatoes and now I know how. Thanks Sabrina!

  5. Those potatoes do sound delicious. I love the cheese that’s in it. I haven’t had mashed in awhile, I’m overdue.

  6. I haven’t added cream cheese and sour cream to my potatoes before! Maybe that’s what’s missing. These look amazing

  7. You always have such good suggestions of things to make and I like that they are usually pretty easy. Will be trying this one soon. Thanks!

  8. I definitely think that the garlic would put this WAY over the top, and ours is almost ready to harvest! Thanks for sharing your brilliance.

  9. Yum these look great. I am not a potato girl but my kids love it, so this is something I could try for them!

  10. Yum! We absolutely love mashed potatoes, and these look delicious. I’ve pinned to try myself.

  11. This is my favorite comfort food. Your cheesy version puts it over the top! I’m thinking that this has to be on the menu tonight.

  12. Oh my, this looks so amazing! My mouth is literally watering at the thought of a taste. I love mashed potatoes but these are a whole other level!

  13. These look so delicious. I wish i could taste them right now. I will have to try this recipe on the weekend. I am sure they are going to be a huge hit.

  14. This entire meal looks soooo amazing. It’s like the ultimate rich comfort foods all in one place. YUM!

  15. I need to stop surfing when I have skipped a meal, I haven’t had dinner yet, and this is definitely making me hungry! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I know have all those ingredients, I need to get on that STAT! 🙂

  16. Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite foods. This is a new way to make them and I can’t wait to give it a try.

  17. I think that my husband will love these. Any idea what may happen though if I left the sour cream out? He is not a big fan of that.

    1. You could do yogurt? Possibly use the second half of the cream cheese and about 2 tablespoons more milk? or just do another 1/4 cup milk. The consistency of the sour cream does help the potatoes loosen up a bit so you will need a bit more of something else 🙂

  18. Oh my gosh these look so delish! I love this side dish makeover and the meal above looks great! Feed me!

  19. I love mashed potatoes and my mom eats potatoes pretty much every night lol! I will have to make this at our next dinner together!!

  20. I swear, I am addicted to potatoes. Whether it’s a baked potato, fries, or mashed potatoes, I’m always looking for ways to reinvent flavor and this looks delicious. I must try it!

  21. I was already hungry, but now I know I NEED these. I’m going to try this recipe over the weekend!!

    1. Uh oh! You made the same mistake I make way too often. Looking at food pictures while hungry! Haha.

  22. Considering that cheese and mashed potatoes are two of my desert island foods, I can live happily ever enter with this version of the two! Delish!

  23. I’m going to have to try this! I love that you used unsalted butter, because you are adding Kosher salt. I never thought about it, but that might be why mine always turn out a little over salted. Thanks for the tip!

  24. Oh, I wish that I could dig right in!! I love using cream cheese in our mashed potatoes too!

  25. OH wow these look SO good! I have a lot of potatoes for some reason right now, I am totally going to try this!

      1. i sure hope its northern california. can’t wait to try this sometimes this week with your chicken recipe
