      The flavors of the potato and cucumber recipes were very good separately, but I didn't get the combination even after tasting it. I do like the versatility of the potato recipe... lots of options. Make sure you REALLY grease the pans though... mine still stuck and ruined the overall effect. I'll make this recipe again, but separately. Thanks!

      i thought these were going to be awesome! But alas, they were not a hit in my house. I admit even i didnt like them. The taste was... well, bland. I gave three stars because i think that they can be improved upon... maybe add some Ranch dressing to the mix, omit the nutmeg and parmesan cheese, and use some shredded cheddar or monterey jack instead... Naxt time i make them ill deff be making these changes... ANOTHER thing i noted was the similarity to a jewish or passover recipe called Kugel... kugel involves eggs, and WAY MORE onions... maybe another hint...

      Yummy recipe, I was at work when Hubby (DH) gave it to Little Miss (DD) for dinner and apparently she ate two, including her other dinner (meat and veggies, which is a lot for a three year old). Hubby served them with a Lamb Crockpot and vegetables but I took the potato cups to work as listed on the recipe (with the cucumbers). The only thing I changes was I used red onion and grounded nutmeg not freshly grated. Very versatile recipe that could be eaten as a snack, entree or a side vegetable for a meat dish. You could even take it on a picnic and eat them cold. Thank you kiwidutch
