  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  4. Place potatoes in a metal bake sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 70 to 80 minutes or until tender. *Hint* Some Microwaves have settings that make baked potatoes but do not cover them in foil.
  5. Start preparing the next part of the meal when the potatoes have about 30 minutes left.
  6. In a bowl you need to add 8 ounces of sour cream and 1/2 cup of flour.

  9. Once you have the mixture stirred you can set it aside.
  10. In a skillet put two tablespoon of butter, one tablespoon of minced garlic, mushrooms, and your desired amount of onions.

  12. Add the flour mixture to the skillet.
  13. Add the desired amount of salt pepper and Italian Seasoning.
  14. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
