With five kinds of dairy these are definitely not of the “simple, classic” variety, but they are of the “what the heck are in these?! THIS IS AMAZING!” variety. And once they come out of the oven with that buttery crispy top, you’ll want to sit down at the table with the skillet in front of you and horde them all for yourself.

Recipe Notes

Adapted from The Chew

Dinner then Dessert TIPS I’ve made these potatoes twice in the last month and the second time I minced up about 5 cloves of garlic that I sauteed in the butter that gets mashed into the potatoes. Holy garlicky amazingness. YES! Make it once the normal way, make it a second time kicked up with garlic. Then hurry back here and tell me which one you loved more!
