I saw Paula Deen make this on her show and it looked DELICIOUS! So I had to try it. I made only 2 potatoes and had to adjust the recipe accordingly and it still was delicious!

I saw this on Paula Deen also. This is now a staple with our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. My son requested them for his 18th birthday. These are AWESOME! Our family loves them.
