From the Chef: "This dish reminds me of my hometown in Minnesota a little down home, a lot of butter, and simple, in a good way. Hot potatoes served at the end of the day will bring you the comfort you need on a cold night or after a jam-packed week. This recipe makes enough to feed a crowd, so it's great to take to family gatherings, or you can freeze half--it reheats incredibly well."
