What a great find! I made this for my adult kids and husband. They all agreed that THIS must be our "go to" potato recipe. I have to agree with them! So many flavors and spices make this a winner.

I started by making half of the recipe (as there were only 3 of us eating) and we all wished I'd made a full recipe. Unbelievable delicious and definitely a favourite!
