"My sister gave me this recipe years ago and it has become a staple of our holiday or 'company is coming' type of dinner. It's easy to assemble and can be prepared ahead of time. It pairs well with beef, ham, or chicken. Leftovers, if there are any, reheat well. Everyone always loves 'The Irish Potatoes.' Yes, I know 'The Irish Potatoes' are fattening, but without the butter, whipping cream, and half and half it is just not as good. Substituting margarine or frozen hash browns would be a travesty." — LillyfromPhilly

salt and ground black pepper to taste
heavy whipping cream
chopped fresh parsley
This has become one of our favorites in the house. It is simple and basic in flavors, but absolutely delicious. The only thing different I do is to cut the butter in half and it still turns out creamy. And the paprika is definitely a must, just like Baking Nana said. Thank you Lilly for this 10 star recipe!
Very bland, tasted them after baking and added cheddar cheese just to give them more flavor. I have other recipes similar to this one that I prefer. Thanks Allrecipes for your website. I will still be trying your recipes.
This really surprised me. It is very good. The only thing I did different was to season each layer of potatoes with salt and pepper& paprika - the paprika is NOT optional, at least in my opinion. Next time and YES, there will be a next time I might add some dried chives to the layers. Thanks - this was a tasty addition to our St. Patrick's Day dinner.
Thanks for sharing Lilly from Philly!
My mother always made these and now I make them all the time! So easy and simple to make. I have made them with canned evaporated milk and shredded frozen hash brown potatoes and we thought they were just as good. If you use canned milk just keep in mind that it gives it a slighty different taste. My hubby actually likes them better with canned milk. These are a good side dish with just about anything but I always make these with meatloaf.
Yes but have you tried it with spring cabbage.this also is irish once you have it you will want it again and again.Maureen from England.
I thought this was delicious and paired with a lean protein and some other veggies, isn't that out of line for a dinner as far as calories.
I made this dish in honour of St.Patrick's Day. It was quite delicious! I added garlic salt to one layer and I substituted the whipping cream (as I didn't have any) with cream cheese, thinning it with a few tablespoons of milk. I was enjoyed by all!
