"AS THE YEARS went by, I added this American side dish to our menu. My children enjoyed the rich cheese flavor, and it enhanced the rest of the meal. I also like these potatoes because I can make them early in the day and then simply heat before serving."

"This dish is hearty and filling - perfect comfort food! For an extra flavor kick, I would add chopped pimentos next time."
