Instant Refrigerator Mashed Potatoes

Instant Refrigerator Mashed Potatoes

5 3/4 cup water
1 stick of margarine
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion salt
2 1/4 cups milk
7 cups instant mashed potatoes
1 pint sour cream
8 oz cream cheese
Cheddar/Colby cheese

In a large cooking pot, combine: water, margarine, salt, and onion salt.  Bring to a boil.  Add milk and potatoes. Mix well and add sour cream and cream cheese. Pour into a 9"x13" casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  May sprinkle with cheese and let melt before serving.

*This is my Aunt Lisa's contribution to our big family Christmas-I think she'd like to bring something else...but these are a fan favorite!
*I usually make my own from-scratch potatoes and add in the other ingredients, but this year for thanksgiving? Fake all the way.  And guess what? no one cared!
*I always use butter.  I may be ok with fake potatoes... not fake butter.
*I like mine with cheese on top.  Ryan likes his with gravy. The house divided!
