Recipe by Jellyqueen

Quick, easy, delicious and a family pleaser! I made this one up when I discovered I'd accidentally purchased a can of potatoes. Love it with fresh Idaho, New and purple potatoes, too!

Why oh why has this never been rated? This is fabulous and I know it will become a family favourite. We microwaved our potatoes so they were almost cooked and then followed your instructions. I used a packet of 'Maggi onion soup mix'. Extremely tasty and a definite favourite.
