These potatoes are pretty much the yummiest side dish ever! There are so many variations on this dish, and I have tried it many different ways. The great thing about it is that it makes a great dish OR a base for lots of mix ins. Ideas for mix ins: chopped ham, bacon, sausage, ground beef or any combination or your favorite veggies. Personally, I like it the way it is or with cubed ham mixed in.
