Good but not "outstanding" in the usual Southern Living recipe sense. I made it exactly as directed. It was a beautiful dish, but I did not find that the extra steps involved over making regular mashed potatoes were really worth the effort in the end result of taste. It could have been that there were an overabundance of other yummy dishes for Christmas, or it could have been my choice of potatoes. I used white potatoes (labeled "good for baking or mashing"); I think I like the texture of red potatoes better. I'm going to give it another try - because I did really like having the mashed potatoes ready ahead of time, but I'm going to use red potatoes, add in garlic to the caramelized onions and a bit more salt.

Made for Christmas dinner. Very good. I did not peel potatoes however, that's the most nutritious part, I would use a little more cheese, I did use more onions. Another suggestion if you want it richer would be half and half instead of milk. Really liked it, easy to put together and got rave reviews
