This recipe was from Tony's Town Square restaurant at Walt Disney World. I have been making these for 6 years now. I have made them for Baby showers, Christmas brunch, you name it they are so versatile. They are a good potato to serve with just about everything. My family loves them.

Made exactly as directed but I did them ahead up until the baking part. I put them in the refrigerator overnight and baked them in the morning. Everyone loved these potatoes! Served with ham, french toast and fruit salad.

definitely a keeper - i prefer this method over baking the potatoes in the oven or frying them on the stove. boiling them first gives them a much better texture, and then baking them crisps up the skin. delicious.

This review is long overdue! I actually was sure I had submitted one a couple months ago, but it doesn't seem to be showing up. I've made these potatoes a few times and they always turn out so well. They can be served with a variety of dishes -- and also any meal or occasion. I love being able to finish them off in the oven.
