Swedish Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by KookieMomster

These are rich and satisfying. They can be a little oily, so plan to eat only a small portion if you are watching what you eat. If you don't want to use dairy products or to make this vegan, try Swedish Potatoes 2.

Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

These make a wonderful potato side dish. DS who does not like any potato unless it is French Fried ate his up without complaining and even asked for seconds! I poured half of the sauce over the potatoes and mixed it in while they were still in the warm pot and then drizzled the remainder of the sauce over the potatoes once they were dished up. They are so versatile they can easily accompany fish, beef, pork, our foul. I served them with Broiled Buffalo Wings and and Rosemary butter basted green beans. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made and reviewed for My 3 Chefs 08
