Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

these made eating leftover mashed spuds seem "fancy" lol....everyone really, and i mean really liked them i just love your site; i seem to use so many of your recipes and ideas each week....thanks for your time, effort and's appreciated

I made these and found that they were overcooked in 13 minutes. Also I wonder if the instructions were in error in directing you to brush the tops with egg yolks. Did you mean with egg whites? The yolk did not cook properly. Despite these problems, I will try this recipe again, as the ingredients sound good, and it is a good use of leftovers. Would appreciate advice on the temperature and use of egg yolks, please.

Great questions! Egg yolks are correct in the recipe. Please make sure to beat them first and lightly brush them on the top of the potato and they should bake up golden brown. In regards to the potatoes overcooking, your oven may run hotter than ours, so try reducing your temperature to 375 degrees and bake according to directions. Thank you for being open to trying this recipe again, it's definitely worth it!

I would add a couple of crushed/mincer garlic cloves, just because.

MMMMMMMMM Garlic good!! Slightly sauteed in homemade butter!
