We really enjoyed the potatoes prepared this way Chef Buggsy Mate. I halved the recipe for dh & I, it worked beautifully. The potatoes had a wonderful flavor and nice textures. We didn't have any French fried onions, so I caramelized a sweet onion and added it to the potatoes as a topping. The potatoes were very yummy, I could have eaten just them. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, which I will enjoy again. Made for Aussie Swap/Jan. 2014.

This is really comfort food. I made my own French Fried Onions (that's the only way DD eats her mashed potatoes). Just a little more work than the regular mashed potatoes but worth it. I said just a little,the extra work meaning having to open the oven door .Twice that it. Thanks for sharing.

Very easy and flavorful potatoes.....slightly thinner than I usually make my potatoes, but tasty never the less! I subbed crushed chips and a small sprinkle of shredded cheese for the topping as I found my French's Fried Onions had gone bad. Who knew? Turned out very nciely - everyone really loved them too! Would definitely make these again. Thank you for a very tasty side. *Made and enjoyed for August Aussie Recipe Swap*
