I was a little intimidated by the amount of fat the original recipe calls for, so I used the suggestions of others and bought fat-free sour cream and neufchatel cream cheese (33% less fat & softer than regular cream cheese). Before mixing them into the potatoes I tried the fat-free sour cream and it is TERRIBLE. It was time to cook so I quickly substituted Greek yogurt. Instead of adding a lot of butter at the end, I added three big pats to the top of the potatoes when they were nearly done. Instead of minced garlic, I roasted a bulb and mashed it into the mix.
They were great! My husband, who has never had yogurt and never will, and probably can't even spell it, also thought they were great. I've never seen him not add butter to mashed potatoes before pouring on the gravy (one reason I only make mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving), but he didn't add butter to these and didn't miss it. This recipe's a keeper!
