Meet the Cook: My mom cooks from scratch and rarely uses a recipe. That's how I learned - a pinch of this, a dash of that. But it was actually my dad who invented the basis for this recipe. The potatoes fit any kind of meal - fancy or burgers - and everyone asks me for the recipe. My husband and I have a son, 3. -Sherry DesJardin, Fairbanks, Alaska

"I omitted the bacon and will try to fry the potatoes longer to make them a tad crunchier. Everyone loved them. No leftovers."

"I was too lazy to go back in the garden to get more parsley and it was still good! I used about 1 tablespoon and I added some fresh basil. I didn't have any of the other spices on hand and it still tasted Great!"

"I've made this recipe twice now. Once with bacon and once without. I think I will leave the bacon out. Bacon overpowered the other flavors. Will make it again."
