I like to fix this whenever I do not have gravy.

I made these, instead of scalloped potatoes, to go with a new meatloaf recipe that I was trying. I only made one modification, after preparing them as described here...I added a small container of sour cream. The potatoes were AWESOME and perfectly complemented the meatloaf. My husband was absolutely in love with these. They'll definitely be making a return appearance to my dinner table.
