If storing (up to 3 days), put in 8X11 baking dish, cover & refrigerate. When ready to bake. Preheat oven to 325. Dot potatoes with butter and sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 50 minutes.It can be adjusted (temp & time) to accommodate other baking with other items. If not using gravy, top with bacon pieces, tomatoes & cheese and put under broiler until bubbly.
