Ingredients

3
lb small red potatoes
1
container (8 oz) chive-and-onion cream cheese spread

3
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2
cup French-fried onions (from 2.8-oz can)
  • 1 Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside. In 4-quart Dutch oven, place potatoes; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer covered 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Shake potatoes in Dutch oven over low heat to dry.
