      I was just getting ready to post this recipe!!! I can't remember where I got it but it's a favorite for me! I slice mine a little thinner, though. Some people may say that it's a waste of a very expensive spice (I use a BIG pinch) but I have to differ...and this is even better reheated. The sauce gets thicker each time. A great thing to have in your repertoire! Thanks for the post!

      DH and I really enjoyed this as a side with dinner last night. The color alone made them a new and exciting addtion. I did add onions to the mix and a pinch of garlic for a little extra flavor and it turned out awesome. We'll be using this recipe often.

      This was OK. I love saffron and potatoes! But When you start to fry your potatoes and there are crispy it `s so hard to add the water with saffron but I did. I think if you melt the butter and add the saffron in it, it would be so much better. It would be golden, crispy, and fragrant. Also the only change I did was slice the potatoes.
