This recipe was made by Bertie the winner of Mr. Food's first ever Idaho Potato Recipe Contest. I changed the way to make them, because we like them I make them in muffin cups. I have tried these and they sure live up to all the hype and fanfare..they were delicious and I bet you will love them too...
