I also cubed the potatoes because I was in a hurry. Great taste. Just like fried potatoes but without all the grease. Thanks for a great recipe.

Great tasting recipe. I did however have trouble getting the potatoes to look like balls with my melon baller. They ended up looking like balls with part of the edge missing. The hardness of the potato is hard to carve with my melon baller. I loved the flavour though, so I think next time I will cut the taters into a uniform large dice. Otherwise a great recipe. It could be I am just a klutz with my melon baller.

Easy & delicious. I don't have a melon baller so I just peeled & cubed the potatoes. Used Vidalia onions. Great side dish with a grilled steak! Would definitely make these again!
