I saw this in BHG also and it looked soooo amazing that I made a point to come to this website if only to find the recipe! I will definitely try this one too - and check out all the others since we often have potatoes for dinner. Thing is, our potatoes get boring - baked or mashed or roasted - can't wait to try some of these and especially this one! YAY!

Instead of the muffin tin, I just stack these in a regular Pyrex dish. The stack isn't as high, but they are just as delicious. They are still good reheated a few days later too.
