Hooray for Aunty Bee! (no matter what L Graham below thinks) The sour cream provides a lovely undertone and, altogether, a really good, quick and uncomplicated recipe that is very tasty and a great accompaniment to any meal. Aside from using home made French fried onions and just a pinch of chopped fresh garlic (lol!) I made no other changes.

What on God's green earth gave you the idea that this was Andy Griffith's favorite recipe!? First of all, he would NEVER have used the term "Auntie" in the South, it's ALWAYS "Aunt." Take it from me, my aunt dated him in high school and there were far too many other good things he preferred. Also, to see this recipe touted under his name and then NO MENTION in the comments accompanying it as to where and how you got that idea is beyond comprehension.

You sound like you'd be tons of fun to hang out with! Not! Grouch!!! So what if it says it's Andy Griffith's favorite recipe! Can you not take a little "tongue in cheek?" Or do you even know what that means. You must be a very unhappy person!

The combination of potatoes, fried onion and cheese melded together is most definitely music to my ears and my taste buds won't be complaining either. I love that the skin was left on the potatoes in this dish ...not only is it said to be healthier but I think it adds something special to the flavor in any dish.

This recipe look SO delicious! You can't go wrong with cheese and potatoes! This recipe is so simple and I bet it tastes even better the next day. This would be easy to make ahead for a weeknight side dish or to bring to a party or potluck. You can even switch up the cheese a bit to give a different flavour - say pepper jack or a sharp aged cheddar? Sounds yummy!
