"These are by and far my favorite potatoes ever! I made them with fat free sour cream rather than reduced fat and they were still perfect! Delicious recipe that everyone is requesting and SO easy to make ahead!!"

"These potatoes are excellent. I used potatoes from my garden. I didn't have chives which would have made them better. The only other changes were 1/3 less fat cream cheese and fat free sour cream instead. I have had mashed potatoes with mayonnaise & they are great but more fat."
