My oldest son can't stand potatoes. He will eat them if it is all I have on hand and usually I do, potatoes can go along way and can be used in so many ways. I decided to search some recipe sites I like and I found this one from the Taste of Home site. I wanted to share this recipe because it has everything I love and I believe my oldest son will actually try it with no fuss. It looks so delicious and can be served with just about anything. I think it will go great with Chicken,Steak,Meatloaf.
