This is a super fantastic recipe. Thanks very much for posting it. I catered a barn dance for 80 and this was perfect! We boiled them in spiced up crab boil until almost done, sort of al dente. Popped them into a styrofoam cooler and delivered with all the toppings. Great idea I will not forget! This is going into My 2009 Favorites Cookbook. **An update to this previously posted rating: My client called to tell me this was THE #1 hit on the buffet!
I don't know what I did wrong, but I have a house full of people and my cooler potatoes are still very much uncooked! I really wanted/needed this to work!
thanks for posting this was very good. there where still hot after hours, just the making them ahead was great time saver, served sour cream green onions and bacon on the side, this got raves from all who there. i did make smaller batch and having soft sided cooler put them in alumunum foil pan inside the cooler worked great. did all prep on taters in the pan
