  • Reviews

  • “This is excellent.I boil new potatoes first.If you like sweet potatoes, try this as an alternative.Your friends and family will rave.”

  • “VERRY DELICIOUSE!! I used the extra butter/brown sugar sauce to dip a banana in for dessert.”

  • “nice simple recipe, but taste wise nothing to rave over.I might try again, cut back on the butter, use the potato cut in half and crank up the heat to really brown them”

  • “I haven’t thought about this recipe in centuries. This is the first thing I cooked as a new bride in 1968. I thought I was Julia Child. Tasted just as good as I remember “
