    peachez's Note:

    I serve this on special occasions. You may be able to substitute white potatoes, but with the Italian Fontina I prefer this with unpeeled red potatoes.

      Place potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer 20- 25 minutes or until tender.

      Drain the potatoes into a colander. Return the potatoes to the saucepan. Over medium heat continuously shake the potatoes to remove any excess moisture 15-20 seconds. Remove them from the saucepan.

      Rice or mash the potatoes. Return the prepared potatoes to the saucepan--no heat now.

      This was the perfect potato side dish to go with our prime rib Christmas dinner. We kept them warm in a crockpot which worked out great. Even better as leftovers! Thanks for posting this fabulous recipe!
