Reviews for Chive & Onion Hash Brown Potatoes
"These were easy to assemble, and I got lots of great reviews on them at the church luncheon."
"Delicious and easy recipe! Assembled the ingredients in a crock pot and let them cook on low all morning long for a lunch, and it was a big hit. Very tasty and simple dish."
"Excellent dish, shared the recipe with many family members. Everyone loved the break from crock-pot cheesy potatoes as the ole stand by"
"Very rich! I made in a deep 3qt pan. I think I will use the 9x13 next time as I suspect the potatoes may cook a bit better."
"Have not tried this yet, but looking forward to it. I'm thinking of making this at breakfast time and serve it with ham & eggs! :)"
"Could use light cream cheese for less calories. Good dish"
"Onions, potatoes and cheese?! Oh, my, all my favorite things together in one easy dish...I'm trying not to rush out and buy everything right now1 This will definitely be a "keeper" in my recipes for our ICU potlucks."
"Excellent dish! I made this today, as a side for the roast beef I made for dinner. I added 1/2 cup sliced scallions, but no other changes. The potatoes were creamy and delicious, with a crispy top and perfect onion flavor. This is a keeper!"
"I thought this was really good. I made the recipe exactly as written and I did not find a lack of flavor at all. I will definitely make these again."
"Barb, you're a beautiful woman, and a good cook; love this recipe."
