These awful potatoes sure did taste awful, good that is! I didn't use as much sour cream as called for, and used lite cream cheese. My son loved them, thanks for posting. =)

I made these for a dinner party recently. They were a huge hit. I had NO leftovers. I added some minced garlic and whipping cream as well. YUMMY!!!
