Cookies, I want to first apologize for the calories I’m about to introduce into your diet. These potatoes are rich and sinful. Just eat a spoonful while running on the treadmill. You’ll be fine.
I make seafood potatoes about 3 different ways. I’ve never had them this way before. The idea came to me when I saw a box of au gratin potatoes at the grocery. That happened months ago. I kind of forgot about it. I wanted to cook for you this week, but I didn’t feel like going shopping. Y’all know…y’all know. But, by the grace of God, I had all of the ingredients I needed in the fridge!
These potatoes are not something you should make regularly if you wanna be bad and bougie. But, it’s definitely a treat.
