I really don't like reviews of recipes that change everything in the recipe but when you live 15 miles in the middle of no-where sometimes (honestly, most of the time) I have to substitute ingredients. I didn't have sour cream but had 4 oz of cream cheese....I have learned that adding a little olive oil to warm cream cheese is a pretty close sub to sour cream. I also had about 4 mushrooms left in a box in the fridge so I threw those in with the onions and zucchini. It was very good as I made it. I am sure it is maybe even better if I followed the recipe exactly...but it was good.!!!!

What a wonderful flavorful recipe. My girls even loved it, and they are not zucchini fans. Great way to hide the veggies. The addition of the zucchini keeps the potatoes moist.

I was surprised at how tasty these potatoes were. I didn't use as mush onion and zucchini as the recipe called for-it seemed like it would be too much. I used about 3/4 of a medium zucchini and less than half of an onion. My husband doesn't even like zucchini and he said these were very tasty. They're pretty to serve as well.

Family really likes this --- some OF THE YOUNGER CHILDREN don't know the zucchini is a vegetable ! ! !I later actually tried it with "not so mashed" potatoes in a little pie shell and was equally as good. Tried a variety of cheese. Worked as well.

This was very good and easy to make. My wife and I made a large batch of these and eat one a day for lunch and as a side dish at dinner.
