"This is a recipe I adapted from the pampered chef. It makes a nice side dish or is a welcome addition to an appetizer tray. Easy to make and kid-friendly."

"Wonderful! These taste a lot like potato skins. We could eat these as a whole meal. The potatoes were baked in a 13x9-inch baking dish and made about 1 1/2 layers. I used 1 C of Sargento Taco & Nacho cheese and 3 green onions. Since we don't eat pork products, I used turkey bacon, which still added a nice bacon flavor. Next time I would use a bit more barbecue sauce (I think the amount really depends on how many potato slices you have). We will definitely have these again; tasty and easy."
"I prepared these as part of our Super Bowl snacks. It wasn't a real winner here. I think that the BBQ sauce contrasted too sharply with the other flavors. Several people commented that omitting the BBQ sauce and adding cream cheese or sour cream to the cheese/bacon/onion mixture might improve them. If you are a BBQ sauce fan, these might be for you. Sorry that they didn't work for us."
"What size pan do you use for this? I tried to use a Pampered Chef stoneware bar pan, my largest flat sheet but it still seemed too small. I ended up with more like a side of warm potato salad. Overall the taste was good, but I would decrease the amount of potatoes or make several trays so that all get the topping. Thank you for posting."
"The recipe did not state how big of a baking pan to use, or how many layers the potatoes should be in. I only had them 2 deep, but the time was not enough to cook the potatoes (I used a thermometer to verify my oven temp, too). The cheese had browned, so I had to remove from the oven and finish them in the microwave. Flavor was ok, Very pretty with the browned cheese and onions on top."
"I love these as made per the Pampered chef recipe with 1 cup of cheddar cheese! Use a tried and true barbecue sauce as it plays a major role in the yumminess of these! These disappear quickly so make sure you make enough!"
"These were really good. I used a Texas style BBQ sauce which made this spicy as my family loves all things spicy. Thanks so much for an easy, tasty, great recipe!!"
"These are sooo good my husband and son just kept on popping them in there mouth wile signing the mmm mmm mmm chorus. Now whenever I need a little music in my house I will whip these up. Thank you so much for a mmm mmm mmm good recipe."
"We enjoyed these. They tasted like potato skins, but with an extra little kick from the BBQ sauce."
