What a tasty potato recipe!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe for my lunch along with Lettuce Salad. Since I made some bacon in order to get some bacon fat, I decided to crumble it and sprinkle it over the potatoes, yum!!! The only problem I had is that the bottom gets nicely browned and the potatoes are tender but the top was crisped around the edges, but kind of dried out and not tender. That would be easily fixed by adding a lid in the beginning, to cook all the potatoes through and then crisping up the top with the broiler. Thanks so much for sharing this tasty recipe.
