    Has anyone made these ahead and frozen them at the halfway point?

    Loved it! My whole family really enjoyed trying this new recipe. I wanted to make a larger quantity so I sliced 7 potatoes (left skins on), melted a whole stick of butter (this proved to be too much), kept it at 1 tsp. salt and added freshly ground pepper. I baked it in an 11x7-inch baking dish. I would just suggest making sure you stir the salt in well as we had some rather salty spots in ours. Great recipe to add to my collection! Thank you, CountryLady for sharing this one!

    This is a keeper. Have made it 3 times and we are having it again tonite. Great for breakfast potatoes too. Nice and crispy. The only change I made is to use 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp lite olive oil as cholesteral is an issue. Thanks for posting, Country Lady.

    It is not necessary to cover. I melt olive oil & butter & brush on each layer.. Salt & pepper of course. I have finely ground dried rosemary which I sprinkle very lightly on several layers & top off with a sprinkle of grated parmesan & a dash of ceyenne. Okay I changed it slightly but the finished results with the very brown crust of parmesan is fantastic. The best you could ever want a potato taste. Do this in a heavy cast iron skillet. The true secret is too crust the bottom layer of potatoes on top the stove till it sizzles then put in the oven.

    This turned out great! I even used a cookie cutter to cut the potatoes into shapes and then baked them for a party and everyone loved it!

    I added fresh ground pepper along with the salt and butter. They turned out great! Nice and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. This is a great dish to have with just about any main dish!

    all above. Add or subtract what you wish. Its almost fool proof.


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!! The photo is 4 generations - my 84 year old mother, myself, my daughter & my youngest granddaughter - taken at the end of 2006. I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted. My thanks to Dreamgoddess for hosting the contest & SusieD for the banner design! <img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f249/Dreamgoddess555/Narrow1-1.jpg">
