These potatoes are a family staple for the holidays. It is my grandma's secret recipe. Be warned, once your guests try them you will be forced to bring them to every family gathering. These are some delicious potatoes.

Top Review by Lavender Lynn

The flavor of these is fantastic. After 50 minutes, the potatoes were still a little crunchy, and we didn't know whether that's the way they ought to be or they were still underdone, but the texture was the main topic of conversation and we all would have preferred them softer. Made for Pick A Chef.
