These Potatoes work very well for group dinners or a Buffet table, and especially well over the busy holidays. They will save you time as they can be prepared ahead of time and frozen for that special meal time.

Reminder: Be sure you remove these from your freezer the day before you need them, and set out at room temp 30 min before going into the oven. This way they have time to thaw. Then they will be ready for your oven.
