    A great way to make potatoes. I wasn't sure how much the bacon should be cooked ahead of time so I fried it until it released most of the fat but was not crispy which seemed to work well. I made a half recipe so decreased everything in half. The only change I made was to decrease the butter more. I only used 1/2 cup and still had butter in the bottom of the pan at the end. Next time I will use a little less than that. I always use unsaalted butter and it worked fine. I corrected the seasoning in the end and really used very little salt. Although this was a lot of garlic we did all enjoy it. I do wonder if less garlic would change the dish much. All in all the potatoes were great, no complaints at our table. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe. Made for 2010 PAC.

    Made for the *Best of 2008* Tag Game & I agree w/you ~ Not much is better than onion, garlic, bacon, butter & cheese, esp when combined w/potatoes. True to his Icelandic heritage, my DH is a potato-lover & even content to eat them boiled w/a bit of butter, but I prefer them dressed up to add flavor & texture so this recipe was a winner for both of us. The amt of garlic here is nothing short of *pure heaven* & won my favor w/its aroma & my 1st bite. I can even see eating these potatoes as the main-dish of a meal w/a salad on the side. *Yum* ! Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-)

    I watched this show and saw the contestant making these and my mouth watered. How happy I was to find this recipe and to be able to adopt you. These tasted wonderful. I didn't change a thing. This was so good and we enjoyed it with Recipe#100519. Thanks for sharing. Prepared for PAC Fall/2008.

    These potatoes are CRAZY good! I agree with Chef1Mom....don't shy away from the garlic, it makes these potatoes great. I used light butter and the ready-to-eat bacon (didn't have to par cook). This is one-pan easy and absolutely delicious - a dish I will make again and again - thanks for posting!
