These are amazing! Not difficult and worth the work. I put extra butter on the top of mine (after they were all mashed) and added a little extra sour cream. Just wonderful! With all of the raves I got from my family this recipe has made its way into the "keeper pile" of recipes!

I'm only 21 and don't have much cooking under my belt but with a new husben and a two year old the same hamber helpers are easy but eating the same thing becomes old quick. Thank you for having this website. Finding easy recipes that tast great and easy to cook has really been a life saver.
