What's not to love about these yummy tatoes. So yummy along with steak tips and a nice salad. Oh yes, we will have these many more times!

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!

I have been wanting to try these, because anything remotely connected with cheese curds is a go for us. These were so yummy with the curds and gravy. I see the pounds coming on but I don't care. Too good to pass up. My family agrees!

Yum! These tasted extra delicious to the hubs and I. All that gravy and gooey cheese. Oh my word! We loved it on some huge Russets I bought especially to make these. We will have them again!
