We make this at holidays, but with the ability of getting good broth now, you can have it anytime! It's potatoes with onions and diced bread added. It has been a hit for everyone I serve it to. Since I'm a grandma and have been serving it for about 38 yrs, that's saying a lot. I don't know what the exact name is. We just called it holiday potatoes. I now call it potato filling.

Ingredients Nutrition
