"I came up with this recipe when I had leftover baked potatoes I wanted to use. They turned out so good I make them regularly now. I have written this recipe from scratch, but if you are using leftover potatoes, just make sure you use well reheated potatoes."

Comfort food up to the high heavens. Potatoes don’t get any better than this, so wicked good! We had it along with our steak and it all came out restaurant quality, if not better, for the fraction of the cost. Hubs sprinkled some chopped scallions over the top of his potato, and brother, was it ever a good addition. Thanks so much, Bea, for sharing. Made it “For your Consideration” tag game.

Excellent! I used extra curds for extra cheesy creaminess. Gravy just adds to the whole experience of trying these for the first time. Comfort all the way with my meatloaf. I plan to make them again!
