My family love these types of potato dishes Ive found here on Zaar. The added sour cream gives the dish a nice puffy texture and the garlic gives a little zing. I added some chopped chives for a little colour. Thanks for posting.

Excellent! Made it for Thanksgiving this year. Tasted even better the next day! I put a scoop of the potatoes in a french onion soup bowl with a large spoon full of gravey on top and baked it in the oven, delicious!
