I just made this up and would have posted it, but here it is! The only things I did differently were to use red potatoes, Smart Balance, and a generous sprinkle of granulated garlic. My whole family loved them--even the picky kids. The cream cheese is really the key ingredient--make them even richer than with sour cream.
