These are REAL good! Make more than you think you'll need! You won't need gravy with these! They're good just as they are! These are a great make-ahead side dish, and are always a hit. They will keep for up to a week in the 'fridge, but be sure to refrigerate any leftovers (ha!), the cheese makes them more perishable than regular mashed potatoes. If you are making them ahead of time for a party or something, you will need to hide them from your family! Yes . . . they're THAT good! They warm up well in the microwave, but as with most foods, you may need to add a little water after warming them up.
Peel, cube and boil the potatoes as you would for normal mashed potatoes. Don't over cook them, or you'll start to lose the potatoes into the water. Test by removing one cube onto a saucer and smashing with a fork. When it smashes up easily, they're done.
Drain the potatoes in a large colander, then put in a large mixing bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients, and whip with mixer. I suppose you could use a hand masher . . . if you don't have a mixer, but I'd be lost without my Sunbeam hand mixer! Add a little water if the mixture gets too dry.
Let stand for about 5 minutes before serving to give enough time for the dried onions in the soup mix to fully rehydrate.
