Add in some sour cream and chives and you have a winning combination.  My two younger girls don’t like sour cream, but they’ll ask for seconds of this dish every time and that’s why I make a big batch of it.

When you pour on some of our giblet gravy you’ll be ready to dig in.  A dear friend once joked that she never met a potato she didn’t like.  Maybe you feel the same way, but even if your not a meat and potatoes person, you will be glad you gave this recipe a try, especially on a special holiday.
