These potatoes were ok, but I wouldn't make them again. The taste does not justify the calories. If you do try make them, make sure you cut the potatoes into SMALL cubes, and watch how much butter you add. I thought it would have been better with less, as they would have browned better.

My family loved these, but I didn't care as much for the cheese as I thought I would. I will make them again..Because my family loved them so much...

I didn't like this recipe very much at all. For the potatoes, I used 6 Russets (I think they were); I didn't peel them (the recipe didn't specify either way) - I just scrubbed and cubed them. This was also one of the rare occasions when I use "American pasteurized process cheese spread" (generic Velveeta). The cooking time of 45 minutes was not nearly enough; at that point, most of the potato cubes were still hard, and a lot more time was needed. After that, the taste was okay, but I thought there was too much salt, plus I would've liked more cheese. Still, I should add that this was best the night I made it; the quality of reheated leftovers was much diminished. Sorry, I wasn't very impressed with this.

used some leftover baked potatoes I had in the fridge for this recipe. It turned out great. I cut potatoes in to chunks after removing the skin, and followed the rest of the directions, only placed mine in the microwave until heated through and WOW! A great way to use leftover baked potatoes! Thanks
