Family recipe from hubby's side, which I have subsituted healthier ingredients for the higher fat butter, cheese and sour cream. No one has noticed the difference.
If you are pressed for time, you can substitute frozen hash browns, but the fresh potatoes give a noticable taste difference

This delicious pie makes it's own "crust" while baking. My mother-in-law gave me the recipe.

1/8 of pie = 2 WW points
