2 medium onions, peeled 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 3/4 cup low-fat sour cream 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese, cut in 1-inch pieces 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced Cooking spray


In a Cuisinart® 3-3/4 quart saucepan, cover the potatoes with cold water, add 1 teaspoon salt. Cook over medium-high heat until tender, drain well and place in large mixing bowl. While the potatoes are boiling, prepare the onions for topping. Melt butter in a 12-inch Cuisinart® skillet, cook stirring occasionally, until reduced and very lightly browned. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Transfer to large mixing bowl. Beat potatoes with a Cuisinart® SmartPower mixer, starting on low speed. Add sour cream, cream cheese and minced garlic. Turn mixer to medium high, beat until smooth and slightly fluffy. Spray the bottom and sides of a 2-quart soufflé dish with cooking spray. Fill with potato mixture. Top with onions. Place the rack into ceramic insert of a Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Place soufflé dish on rack. Cover and cook on Low Setting for 5 hours using the Timer Function – Slow Cooker will automatically switch to Keep Warm until ready to serve. Potatoes will be puffed and onions browned.
