"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Jan - a newspaper clipping Mom has in her Recipe Box calls these "Funeral Potatoes" - well they are "To Die For" and a good dish for a crowd or to make ahead. This recipe is easy to "Skinny Down" - use a little less Butter, use Light Sour Cream, Light Soup, Light 2% Cheese, and a little less Butter in the Topping. Or make it Fatty and have a smaller portion. Delicious and easy to make ahead! Good brunch dish!!
