The addition of maple syrup makes these pleasantly different. This dish was always popular when I catered holiday dinners. The amount of syrup here is what I use but you may certainly add more or less if you like. I have also cut it down as I doubt that very many folks will be having 100 at their table *wink*. Prep time is actually the mixing time after the potatoes have been baked. Also, this can be made the day before and gently reheated (covered) before serving.
