I made this for lunch and served it with smoked sausage and it made for a wonderful meal. I already had my slicer attachment on my KitchenAid, so decided just to slice them, rather than dicing them. The only other changes I made was to use part butter and part crisco and to add some seasoning after cooking. I found them bland without any seasoning, but otherwise fully enjoyed the potatoes!!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag.
After reading the reviews I tried somethig different, I really dont like to change other Zaar members recipes around but I tried 1tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon shortening to see if this would work. # out of 4 of us thought this was great while 1 thought it was just okay. I thought that the flavor was pretty good and will try again. This was a great compliment to leftover turkey tonight. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
I needed more flavor. We love the crunchy/crispy version. It's the same thing without adding the water and probably coz it's so full of flavor I didn't care much about this. Maybe some garlic added just before it's ready might spice it up a little.
A winner in this household! I made it for dinner tonight and I already have repeat requests from my kids. I added a couple of cloves of garlic minced at time of adding water and used 3/4 cup of water. I also used butter instead of shortening. Will make again real soon. Made for 1-2-3 tag.
This is a nice side dish to just about any meat. The potatoes are very tender. I think next time I would use butter instead of shortening, or maybe butter flavored shortening. There was not much seasoning either so I woud also add some garlic powder, paprika, or oregano maybe. Overall, we liked this side dish, it just needs a little tweeking.
