Crash Hot Potatoes

Linda Easley


One look at these and I was out the door. Couldn't wait to buy the the potatoes to make this dish. Had everything else I needed in the pantry. I did add a little garlic to the potatoes. I must say that this is really good. A nice addition instead of plain potatoes. You surely won't be disappointed.
