I've used these rich potatoes as both an appetizer and side dish. Guests seem to enjoy the distinctive taste of Monterey Jack cheese and basil. These satisfying mouthfuls are perfect for a late-afternoon or evening get-together when something a little heartier is needed. — Susan Herbert, Aurora, Illinois

"We love red potatoes and the flavors of this dish were great. They were a lot of work but made a great side dish for our traditional Sunday family dinners."

"I found using the red potatoes to be more of a hassle than it was worth. The filling is delicious though."
