A former co-worker of mine hosted an Octoberfest party a few years ago and served this potato dish. It was a huge hit with everyone who attended! It is, by far, the most creamy and flavorful potato dish that I have ever eaten. The recipe is from the October 1992 issue of Bon Appetite.

We really enjoyed the potatoes prepared this way. The mustard is a nice addition. These creamy, flavourful potatoes were easy to make. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe Southern Polar Bear.
