Creamed Potatoes

These melt-in-your-mouth potatoes, in a mild creamy sauce, complement any meat entree, and they're a pleasant change from mashed or baked. -Susan Ormond, Jamestown, North Carolina

    Very good and a nice change from mashed potatoes. I did saute an onion in the butter and added a bit more salt and pepper, but nothing major. It was very good!

    Yum! Enjoyed this recipe with baked chicken breasts and steamed broccoli. The chicken also tasted good with some of the cream sauce on it from the potatoes. I added some grated cheese to the sauce. Will make this again.

    This was pretty good... A bit bland though. Needs more seasoning.

    This is like my recipe for creamed potatoes but for a variation I add onion powder or flakes to the sauce and when the potatoes are added I cut bite size pieces of ham or hotdogs. HAve made it like this for years and is a quick meal when you add some canned or fresh corn to it. We call it Creamed Potato and Hotdogs. delicious and inexpensive meal.
