Mashed Baked Potatos
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this on Food network.com, and tried it for the first time recently.
It is the best potato recipie that I have tried.
It's good for Holiday meals, and can be made ahead of time.

Ingredients You'll Need
4 Cups frozen hash browns
1 (7.6-ounce) package butter and Herb mashed potato mix. ( I used two 4 oz. Idahoan Butter & Herb.)
1 stick butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups boiling water
2 cups prepared french-fred onion rings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bring a pot of water to boiling, and add the hash browns. Cook for five minutes and drain. In a large bowl, mix together the cooked hash browns, mashed potato mix, butter, cream cheese, jack cheese, sour cream, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Stir in the boiling water. Place in a greased 2-quart casserole dish.
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Sprinkle the onion rings over the casserole and bake for about 5 to 8 minutes longer until onions are golden brown.
