What's For Dinner?

I made homemade mashed potatoes last night.  This recipe is from Betty Crocker web site.  They tasted even better than the ones I get at my favorite restaurant!  So creamy.  Try it - you'll love it!

Make-Ahead Sour Cream 'n Chive Mashed Potatoes

3lb small red potatoes
1container (8 oz) chive-and-onion cream cheese spread
1container (12 oz) chive-and-onion sour cream
1 1/2teaspoons salt
1/4teaspoon pepper
3tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2cup French-fried onions (from 2.8-oz can)
1.Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside. In 4-quart Dutch oven, place potatoes; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer covered 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Shake potatoes in Dutch oven over low heat to dry.
2.Mash potatoes until no lumps remain. Add cream cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper; mix until well blended. Spoon into pan. Cover tightly with foil and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours. (To bake immediately, drizzle with butter and bake 30 minutes, adding onions for last 15 minutes of baking.)
3.Heat oven to 350°F. Drizzle butter over potatoes. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle onions over potatoes. Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes longer or until potatoes are hot.
