I have made this for years, it's just total comfort food that is filling and just plain good, you may reduce the butter amount if desired if you are watching your fat intake ---it has very few ingredients but makes a really great side dish you can even throw in some dryed smoked sausage if you like --- prep time includes boiling potatoes.
These scrumptious potatoes are very flavorful, VERY EASY, and always a hit! We always serve these when we have company, it just kicks up a steak dinner! Now the # of potatoes depends on the # you are cooking for! I am going to do this for 4
