Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover by an inch or two. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine milk and Magic Onion Dust in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream and cream cheese and remove from heat.
Drain potatoes and return to pot. Using an electric mixer, beat potatoes until mostly smooth, then add warm milk mixture and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Transfer to a 2-quart casserole dish and dot with butter.
Cover and refrigerate for up to three days before serving. To heat, bake (covered) at 350° until hot throughout, about 40 minutes.
