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.

Nice creamy and tasty potatoes. I doubled the amount of potatoes, mine were small,left the skins on, and added water to the pot until I could see it coming up the sides of the potatoes. DH loves cheesey potatoes so I added some shredded mozzarella before serving. With or without the cheese these potatoes are great. Thank you for posting hon, made and reviewed for PAC 2007.
