Love this recipe because you don't have to peel the potatoes. I didn't get it from anywhere...I've always made garlic potatoes this way. I guess you could say it's my recipe....or maybe I do it this way because it's the way my mother did it. LOL

Very tasty. And reheated well in the microwave. The garlic flavor was very mild. Next time, I think I'll increase to 5 cloves of garlic. Also recommend heating the sour cream before adding to the potatoes, to avoid cooling the potatoes too much.

I was not impressed as the others who rated this. I found it needed to doctor up this recipe in order to get some good flavor and taste. I will not make this again based on this recipe

Just delicious! I subbed 2% Greek yogurt for the sour cream, so good! Very pretty too.
