Reviews for Alfredo Potatoes
"This is a delicious recipe for potatoes and I think it's less trouble than twice baked. Very good and my husband loves it!"

"Very moist and tasty,, will make them again!"
"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."
