These were nice! Really creamy and full of flavour. I really enjoyed the addition of green onion and the paprika butter topping. Left out the butter in the mash itself and used reduced fat cream cheese as well as low fat yogurt in place of the sour cream. With these changes it was still a rich and yummy dish and I didnt have to feel guilty about indulging with it. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe with us, Lvs2Cook!

3 out of 4 loved but the 4th was well it is o'kay but we did nail the problem in that he isn't totally enamoured with the sour cream being baked after being mashed into the potatoes as he feels it changes the taste of the texture and he doesn't really like it so will be happy to do this recipe again but will mash and serve (so minus the extra tablespoon of butter on top). Thank you Lvs2Cook, made for I Recommend Tag by Lauralie41.
