Super yummy! Made using heaping spoon of paprika and would not change a thing. A wonderful potato dish for breakfast or dinner. Have always loved potato and onions together but the addition of paprika is just outstanding. Will make again. Thanks so much for the post.

WOWZA!!!! Delicious! These will please the most pickiest of eaters. Mine came out crispy and flavorful and we were eating them by the handfuls before we even sat down to dinner. Thanks lazyme! Made for ZWT 6 by a fellow Unruly.

Very nice recipe. Potatoes and onions have been a favorite of mine since childhood but the addition of paprika is new to me. It adds a great smoky flavor. I cooked these spuds and onions in my cast iron skillet and then popped it directly in the oven to finish roasting while I prepared the rest of dinner. Thanks for the new variation of a great classic!
