Notes

If you're not serving this right away you can warm the potatoes in a 350 oven with a few extra slices of butter on top. You can even make this up to three days in advance to ease the day-of cooking for holidays, just make sure to let it come to room temperature before heating in the oven for 20-30 minutes.
