You are right, Carmen, these ARE good! My son who recently had a tonsillectomy requested some cheesy potatoes, so I decided on this recipe. Of course, he added even more cheese, but said they went down sooo good! The rest of us enjoyed them too. I sued FF sour cream and reduced fat cheddar. Thanks Carmen B. !
