These potatoes are great for when you are having company over as they are a real comfort food. They can also be prepared in advance.

Top Review by Baby Kato

We really enjoyed the potatoes prepared this way Chef Buggsy Mate. I halved the recipe for dh & I, it worked beautifully. The potatoes had a wonderful flavor and nice textures. We didn't have any French fried onions, so I caramelized a sweet onion and added it to the potatoes as a topping. The potatoes were very yummy, I could have eaten just them. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, which I will enjoy again. Made for Aussie Swap/Jan. 2014.
