Yummy home fries. I skipped the butter, and increased the chives and parsley. An enjoyable meal.

Very fresh flavor on these potatoes with all the fresh herbs. I did decrease the amount of oil/butter I used since the bacon makes so much grease. I also wasn't watching the clock when boiling my spuds so they were a little mushy, but not too bad. Made for Best of 2012 Cookbook Tag.

Oooohhhhhh la la! These potatoes were magnifique! Seriously good side dish here (so good, I could eat it as a main dish). I did let my potatoes boil longer than 5 min. which was a mistake on my part. It made my taters a bit mushy, but still tasty. I won't make that mistake again! The herb blend was perfect together and I happily grow them all in my garden! Made for ZWT8 France. Merci! P.S. This is going into my best of the best cookbook.

I don't know what is button onion, so I used yellow onion. I let it cook more than 10 minutes at the end. I wanted the bacon to be crispy. And since the steak wasn't ready, I could cook them longer. DH already went in Alsace and said these potatoes reminded him something. When I told him it was "a l'alsacienne" he said that's why. He already ate that in Alsace. They have a wonderful taste. Thanks Leslie :) Made for ZWT8 for the Diners, Winers and Chives

These were great! Didn't have button onions so substituted these with green onions. Also added additional green onions for the chives. Eliminated tarragon and parsley b/c I didn't have them and added fresh basil.

OH MY GOODNESS, these are good. I made these last night to go with some chicken we had and these were fabulous. I loved the fresh herv combo in these. And they fried up so nice and crispy. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Very tasty recipe. I didn't have any bacon so I just used bacon grease in place of the butter and oil to give a bacon-y flavor. Tasted like breakfast home fries to us for the most part.

This was a great recipe to take when we went camping! So tasty after playing all afternoon. I used chopped onions instead of the button onions and just went with parsley. Everything else I did as posted. Thanks for a yummy recipe that could be adapted for the great outdoors! Made for the July 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.

Another recipe I was trying to get made during the tour but didn't get a chance. I'm so glad I finally got to it! We loved this recipe! I didn't have button onions so I just used one small onion cut once in half & then sliced. I also had to use dried tarragon. This dish was so easy & went perfectly served alongside Roasted Pork Loin With Mustard Garlic and Herbs with homemade Dijon Mustard. Thanks for posting, Leslie! And thanks again for being such a wonderful tour guide for ZWT 5! :)
