Do all of the potatoes go into the pan at one time? Seems like a lot.

Hi there! This was actually done in a soup pot, so it all fit just fine. If you decide to do it in batches we suggest keeping the cooked batches in the oven at 200 degrees F, so that they stay warm while the rest are cooking. Enjoy!
