"My mother-in-law served these buttery potatoes at brunch a while ago, and I wouldn't leave until I had the recipe," notes Holly VeDepo of West Liberty, Iowa. Chopped red pepper provides this stovetop side dish with a bit of color.

"Knew they were doomed from the start, when I took them out of the microwave and they were too soft. I followed the directions, and have a normal microwave, so I blame the recipe. Then, I used a cast iron skillet, which turned out to be a disaster-- not looking forward to cleaning that mess. The flavor was fine, but it was like eating very lumpy mashed potatoes. A little odd for breakfast. Not sure if it's worth trying to tweak or not."
