    Yooper, you said it all, these spuds truly are awesome, addictive and could be a meal on their own. We ate them tonight, and didn't alter a thing in the recipe. I'm seeking out great potato recipes, and these are way up at the top of my list. Thanks.

    Definitely rich, but yum-my, even using old-school US bacon instead of prosciutto

    Like mewmew said, they would be good with anything. I replaced the prosciutto with streaky bacon but otherwise kept with the recipe. Only thing keeping me from awarding 5 stars is that I found the parmesan a little too much - but that is a personal thing. Easy to reduce to suit one's own taste.


What can I say about myself that hasn't already been mentioned in the police reports? Just kidding! I'm a single guy who loves to cook! Good thing, or I'd starve or go broke eating out! I love to read, horror and mysteries are my favorite. Love music, (except rap) and I'm a huge Green Bay Packer Fan!
