made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS! i used a 9x13 pan, and the serving size was just right. i did end up pulling it out of the oven uncovered at 50 minutes. it was getting a little dark on top. after letting it sit covered for 10 minutes, the potatoes were perfectly tender. yum! will make again! - 11/5/09
