READY IN: 2hrs 55mins

Lower-fat version of do-ahead potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese. My lightened version of my sister-in-law Kim's potatoes, which are everyone's favorite at Thanksgiving.

Now that I have defrosted and eaten this I am adding the stars. We found it dry but with good flavor. Would probably benefit from gravy too. I had put it in 2 containers. One we ate tonight with tuna steaks, peas, and cinnamon apples. I think I'll use the other container for potato cakes. --------Made and put in the freezer. Rating without stars so I will be able to find it later to rate, once I defrost and cook it. Looks great, though. I used russet potatoes and all reduced fat sour cream as I noticed, too late, that the only yogurt I had was vanilla.
