When I was growing up on the farm my mother would make all kinds of potato dishes as they had plenty from their gardens But this one dish seemed to be the most asked for.

Excellent! Similar to "Cow Camp Smother" This is a good recipe to put on a grilled fire pit or any type of grill. I will try it on a regular stove next. Thanks for posting.
