      I made a half recipe and cooked in an 8x8 pan and it took 40 minutes to cook at 170C fan forced and 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed the lot. Thank you Nif for a great side.

      Made this as one of several vegetable sides when my vegetarian son & DIL were over & it was a big hit with all! loved this particular onion & potato combo! The only thing I did differently was to leave the potato skins on! Thanks for sharing a great keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in Went to the Market tag]

      Excellent!!! Loved these potatoes, as I am an onion lover and potato lover and the two of them together was wonderful. I served them with a marinaded flat iron steak and salad. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Nif for a wonderful new potato dish and was made for Potluck Tag!!!
