  1. This recipe is a great begining to the best potatoes. DH did not like them, DD and myself thought the tomato was the deal breaker for us. I didn't measure the ingredients. I used about 7 small potatoes and diced them, a spoonful or two of sour cream and a mixture of cheddar cheese and some colbyjack that I already had shredded in the fridge from another night. i did toss in a few Tbsp of real bacon bits and I used a pinch of cayene pepper because I didn't know what ground red pepper was supposed to be. I added a little bit of garlic powder also. I think this would have been great without the tomatoes. thanks for sharing
  2. I'm really sorry for this rating. I didn't enjoy them. Only DH told me they were ok. Not the best. There was probably something missing. Maybe it would add more flavour to grill the onion in just a little bit of butter. I didn't like the tomatoes in it. Thanks Annacia for posting. I thought I would like it. Made for Market tag.
  3. Super tasty. Most ingredients were needing to be used it, so it was a pleasure to serve. I actually liked it better, before it was baked. Thanks for the great recipe.
  4. Very Good! I can see many ways to make this recipe your own!!
  5. I hate to give this two stars when it was so easy to make, and baked up just like the picture, but it was just too bland for our taste. As a matter of fact, we took the left overs and added bell pepper to them and baked again. Much better. I chopped my potatoes with my Vidalia Onion chopper after I sliced them in thik slices. I didn't know that potatoes are softer than onions, but they were sure easy to cut and came out in perfect uniform cubes.
