This recipe is complete and is now in the refrigerator to chill overnight. I read the 1/2 cup of butter in the recipe as a HALF CUP and not 2 sticks. In U.S., a stick IS a half cup. Perhaps down under their sticks are a 1/4 cup each. I sure hope that I did the right thing. I'll find out tomorrow. I must say, there certainly were a fair number of steps considering the simplicity of ingredients....and two sticks seemed like a lot even for my real butter loving family (everyone lives to near 90 in my family so no cracks about cholesterol).
My mother had these at her 65th (can you imagine!) high school reunion dinner this summer and requested that I try to make a version for her dinner tomorrow. The Global Olympic version was the best I could come up with. She said that the cook that made them at the dinner called them "heavenly potatoes".
Also, do you think the dish should be covered while cooking or leave uncovered? I wish it said one way or the other.
