"I use this recipe for large gatherings and even tailgating. It is soooooo good!!!!!!!! Everyone loves it & always wants the recipe. When tailgating we set up a potato bar with cheese, bacon bits, etc."

"This was my contribution to a family Christmas dinner. I cooked the potatoes the night before & baked them just before setting out for the host house. I sprinkled bacon bits & shredded cheddar cheese on top for color. It made a welcome alternative to the usual mashed potatoes. I froze the leftovers as single servings to use later with other meals. Very easy to do & definitely a keeper recipe."

"These are perfect as is - no adjustments needed. The finished potatoes fit perfectly in my 2.75 quart pyrex baking dish, so it makes about 11 cups. I haven't tried freezing them. I make them a day or two in advance & then reheat them in my crock pot buffet server, which frees up my oven for the turkey or ham."
