The Italian dressing does give a very nice flavor to the potatoes! I cut my potatoes a little smaller and they got nice and crispy on the outside. Thanks Kitten!

Really a yummy recipe! I made a couple of changes ... potatoes cut smaller ... no cheese ... Also, after done baking, put on a paper towel to remove any excess olive oil. note: on the dressing, I used a packet of dry Italian salad dressing.

I made these potatoes last night and they came out really good. Giving 4 stars because they seemed pretty greasy. I think they would have been better if I'd have been more careful and not let excess dressing/oil get onto the sheet. I'll definitely be making these again!
