"My WHOLE family (all of them picky eaters) loved these potatoes! They really were quick and easy--have already had the family request I make them again. With these potatoes, I tried the "pork Tenderloin with Wine Sauce" recipe and the whole meal was truly a hit."

"My kids love these! I cut the fat and calories a bit by substituting light alfredo sauce and used 2% cheeses. They taste fabulous and have become a household favorite."
