There’s a time and a place for fancy steakhouses, but for normal folk like us, it just doesn’t make sense to spend that much on one meal on the regular. That’s why we like to figure out how to make all of our expensive favorites at home. We think Best Copycat Potatoes is some of our best work yet. They’re just as creamy, just as cheesy, and just as heavenly as the ones we like to order… but at a fraction of the cost. And honestly, when the Best Copycat Potatoes are cheaper, we think they taste even that much better! Save your money for something else… these spuds are the bomb!
