Even mashed potato aficionados won’t be able to tell that these creamy, garlicky potatoes have been slimmed down with nonfat sour cream and skim milk. 3 POINTS per serving.

These were yummy and I will make them again. I didn't have chives so I used parsley, I'm sure chives would be even better. Mine ended up needing a bit more milk/sour cream but it also made more than 4 servings of 1/2 cup so maybe my version of 8 small potatoes was off. These worked well for leftovers too. Thanks.
