"The potatoes are great...served with sour cream. I also used Onion Soup Mix instead of minced onions...probably 2-3 Tablespoons."

"Quick and easy. I, too, used chopped onion and added salt. I'll make this again."

"This would also work great with Swiss or Jarlsberg or even Guyere cheese too.... and put some crisp bacon crunched up on top of it. These potatoes would also be great layered with cooked diced or chunked ham Ok, Now I'm hungry. :-)"

"Wonderful recipe! Easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I substituted 2T of Lipton Onion soup mix instead of the minced onion. My husband asked for a bit more of the onion soup mix next time. Its an easy recipe to adapt to likes of all."
