When I am in a hurry and need a potato dish this one has never failed me. It is quick and easy and very pleasy. hehe I have taken this to work parties, church gatherings, family functions and the list goes on... My husband is the one that makes the killer mashed potatoes and gravy but if I'm making potatoes and need to get it done this is my choice of Simple & delicious yummy alternative option. Hope you enjoy.
