    Kim D.'s Note:

    These potatoes are so creamy! I received the recipe from a friend at work. Cooking time includes both boiling and baking. Add 30 minutes standing time, if you refrigerate before baking.

      A wonderful recipe. To keep help warm up prepared potatoes, place in crockpot and set on low to keep warm or place on high to heat up quickly. A nice way to keep potatoes warm.

      What incredible flavor these potatoes have. All our guests raved about them at Christmas Dinner. The only change I made was to peel the potatoes before cooking them. I saved a taste for friends who were dropping in the next day and heated it in the microwave. They also loved them and wanted the recipe, so I emailed your page to them. YUM!YUM!

      Kim, this was a perfect potato dish to choose for my 9/11 memorial dinner. I doubled the recipe and made two pans the day before. These potatoes stayed nice and creamy, as if I had made them at the last minute! This will be the mashed potato recipe I turn to when making big holiday meals from now on!
