Very good. I couldn't find my salt and pepper shakers so I used seasoning salt instead.

These were so good! Loved the way the potatoes get "done to perfection" and the onion is so sweet! I had to make these at 350* in the oven for 1 hour- worked great!Will definitely make these again- Made for PAC Spring,2011.
