    This was okay, lot of work for what turned out to be a so, so potato recipe. I have had better. I could not get the poatoes to brown, or have a crisp coating.

    Yummy. I made these exactly as directed except that I only used half an onion and I used half butter and half olive oil. My potatoes were just a little past their prime, but this came out fantastic anyway. Thanks for sharing. I will make these again.

    Good, easy, I think anyone would like them.I agree that the potatoes didn't brown for me either, but still tasted good.

    Wow--This also drew raves from the family (AND the Mother-in-Law!!)...that is when my hubby could stop eating long enough to say MMMMmm...The prosciutto adds just enough of a salty kick and the rosemary wasn't overpowering--what a wonderful marriage of flavors--

    These got raves from the entire family. This was a very easy way to dress up potatoes and they came out looking like a fancy dish. I used leftover baked ham and dried rosemary instead of fresh. I also used half olive oil and half butter for frying. Thanks for this recipe; we'll be having it often.
