Where is the 6th star? DH and I were in tater heaven. The smoked gouda (availble at my local grocery) prepackaged , presliced, very inexpensive) gave a unique smokey flavor to mundane taters. This was a nice change to cheese potatoes and didn't pass GO, but went straight to 2011 favorite, iit surpassed cheese taters hands down. Made for ZWT7, shady Ladies. Thanks for sharing a real keeper.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #49* did not assign stars since couldn't find smokey gouda. Eyeballed about 1/3 of recipe ( for 2), and used shredded Gruyere in place of the gouda. It was a nice combination of ingredients and prep., but, to our taste needed some salt and pepper. Served with sweet Italian sausage with peppers and onion -- made a nice Saturday night dinner. Thanks for posting, APARZCH.

Nice potato dish. I only had regular Gouda, so added just a tiny bit of liquid smoke. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
