Easy Crack Potatoes!
Well we have Crack Dip and now we have Crack Potatoes. The Crack dip is one of the most popular blog posts on the blog. I’m guessing it just might be in the name!
These potatoes are AH-MAZ-ING! Like stuff your face in the plate good. They make 3 lbs of potatoes and let’s just say between three of us we polished off all of them. Carb overload anyone?! My little bro happened to be there the night I made these and he had already made dinner plans so as we were scarfing these down and oohing and aahing over them he was telling us to shut our holes. What can I say? He totally missed out on pure deliciousness!
