My family loves mashed potatoes and they enjoy having them with these meals – Crockpot Chuck Roast, Bacon-Cheese Topped Chicken, Fried Porkchops with Gravy and Shelley’s Pork Chop Dinner.

The Secret Ingredient is you guessed it – cream cheese!  Did you know that you can freeze cream cheese?  It works great and saves money!  I like to purchase cream cheese in bulk on sale and stockpile it for recipes.  Check out this post Can You Freeze Cream Cheese to find out how!
