    Lisa in Acworth, GA's Note:

    I love this recipe! It came from Southern Living magazine and is one of my family's favorite. It takes a little bit of time to prepare and cook but is well worth the effort. Very unique taste with the gorgonzola and the sweetness of the onions. Enjoy!

      Very good potatoes. Rave reviews from the family and requests for the recipe. The onions did not caramelize for me in the time allotted in the recipe, though, I needed at least 20 minutes more. These even tasted better the next day! AS leftovers, I may have given them a 5-star-rating. They are definitely a lot of work, though.

      Best alternative to plain mashed potatoes ever!!! Made this for my very first Christmas dinner and they did not disappoint! I made them exactly as the recipe stated. These were super yummy and very rich in taste. I served a HoneyBaked Ham and this recipe paired very well with it! THE ONLY CAUTION--- I would give is if you need to keep this dish warm by keeping it in a warming drawer or in your oven on warm, the potatoes do not keep their shape and end up becoming "runny." So if you can make this dish last so you do not have to keep it warm that would be for the best so they don't loose their shape.

      I made for Christmas Eve dinner and they were a hit. I discovered as I was preparing them that one of my guests was allergic to Rosemary so had to omit, but will certainly add the next time. I did not dollop the top either, but prepared all else as written. Delicious and will make again.
