  1. These are so tasty and they make the kitchen smell sooo good. I like to make these wedge shaped instead of cubes, and I add some garlic powder too. A little bit of sour cream for dipping, heaven...
  2. Great! I added a pinch of garlic powder to the cheese mixture in a sandwich bag & shook to mix. Poured the oil in a 9 x 9 square baking dish. Paper toweled dry the cubed potatoes, added them to the oil and tossed to coat. Then sprinkled on half the cheese, stirred and sprinkled the other half. Baked at 375 degrees for 45 minutes then turned on broiler to lightly brown the potatoes. No left-overs tonight!
  3. WOW! You've done it again Inez! These potatoes have a fantastic flavor. They are easy to prepare and use ingredients I normally have on hand. Thanks for another new family favorite!!!!
  4. These were pretty good. I made as written and baked them in a shallow, glass baking dish. Next time I'll use a non-stick baking dish as they stuck quite a bit to the glass. I used yukon gold potatoes and they came out somewhat crispy on the outside and creamy within. Thanks for posting this MizzNezz!
  5. I thought it was alright,but like everyone said i should have added garlic powder


  1. Like another reviewer, I subbed the oil with butter. I spread melted butter on my baking sheet, turned the potatoes a few times during cooking. I used unpeeled red potatoes, maybe five or six cups. Everyone enjoyed these potatoes; I liked that they are made with ingredients I always have on hand. I cooked them in the same oven with my chicken wings at 350 for one hour.
  2. Great recipe. I did alter it a bit, used oregano instead of basil, and added garlic powder as suggested, and tossed the potatoes into the mixture. I cooked it for 45 minutes then added 1/2 Cup of grated Cheddar Cheese and about 2 tsp seaoning salt then cooked it for an additional 15 minutes. No leftovers at this house and even those who don't normally comment about a dish were quick to give glowing comments about this one.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
