One of the great things about these creamy potatoes is they turn out even better if you make them a couple days ahead and bake them on the day you serve them till they're golden brown on top. —Krista Smith Kliebensteain, Broomfield, Colorado

"I made these for Thanksgiving and these were creamy and delicious. I did the same; left some of the skins on some of the potatoes. I also made the recipe the night before, then baked it 40 mins prior to dinner. The recipe can easily be doubled, which I did for the big dinner, except I increased the sour cream by only an add'tl 1/2 cup. Everyone liked them; will be a feature at holiday dinners and special occasions."

"My family loved these potatoes. I was told that they go on the "make again" list. I agree that they only get better with time. They were great the first night and even better the second. I made them along with the Grilled Sirloin Roast and Coconut Pineapple Cake that go with this as "My Mom's Best Meal"."

"I used 10 potatoes, but only peeled 5, left the skin on the other five. Used reduced fat cream cheese and sour cream and skim milk to cut down on the fat."

"I use a 5 lb. bag of red potatoes instead of what the recipe calls for, and an extra 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder. My 19 year old son won't eat regular mashed potatoes, but he loves these ones."
