This was one of my Mom's best-known dishes. She always brought this one to all of my Girlscout & PTA potlucks, and undoubtedly she would be writing down this recipe for many requestors when I was just trying to GO HOME!!! Although it aggrivated me to no end that her recipe was so popular (when I was little), I'm also thankful that I have the pleasure of sharing her hand-written recipe with my friends now...

These were great! We loved the flavor combo. I made them to go along with fried chicken for dinner. I prepared them early in the day and popped them into the oven before dinner. It worked out perfectly! Thanks so much for posting!!

Want a delicious, but a little bit different potato dish tonight? Try this! It's a well written recipe with easy to follow instructions. I sucessfully cut it in half since there was just two of us eating it. I used refrigerated garlic, so I used double the amount. I also used roasted red peppers from a jar rather than pimentos. It took exactly 40 minutes to bake in my oven. This is a delicious and flavorful potatoe dish. I think this will be good to make ahead for holidays and company. Thank you for sharing your Mom's delicious recipe with us Stacky5LRC!
