    rochsann's Note:

    From another of my favorite junior league cookbooks, "Creme de Colorado", a great addition to holiday meals, or alongside a thick steak. If you don't have time to bake the potatoes and cool overnight, then boil potatoes with skins left on and cool in fridge. For a slightly "powdery" texture, use Idaho potatoes, for a more creamy one, use Yukon Gold.

      Everyone loved these potatoes! Served with Easter dinner but will keep in mind the next time I grill steaks. Only change I would make is to melt the butter, then combine all ingredients. Cooking the cheese/butter mixture together was difficult, and I ended up with a gloppy mess. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      These are delicious potatoes. The baking of them first gives them an unique texture. They would be equally good with a steak dinner as well as a holiday one. Update: these were the "hit" of my holiday dinner. I cooked my cheese/butter mixture a bit too long and I was afraid it would be string, but I transferred mixture to a double boiler (low) and it smoothed out nicely! The melted cheese texture and the powdery grated texture really are outstanding! Roxygirl in Colorado
