MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 22, 2010

"The flavor of these potatoes was good... However, they needed a lot longer than 10 minutes on the grill. I might have precooked them longer but I guess I was disappointed because I ended up cooking them in the oven for another 20 minutes. Not that impressed."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2008

"A little too cheesy for me...I'd try it again with cheddar or other cheese and probably about half the amount."
