Melt the butter in a medium pot and saute the diced onion until translucent.
Add the remaining 1 cup of cream/milk mixture, cream cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and simmer gently, stirring, until the cream cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth,
Stir in about one cup of the shredded cheese until smooth and melted.
Pour the mixture over the potatoes and top with the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese.
