Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These potatoes are definitely sassy and savory, I literally wanted to lick my plate they were so good. The cheese sauce has plenty of seasoning and even has a little kick to liven up the potatoes. I also love the flavor the fresh onions gives the dish - an extra punch of flavor. These potatoes would be great for a potluck or a side with your holiday ham or roast. Delish!
