I give this recipe out often. It's suitable for any meal, and a terrific use of leftover potatoes. They're great alongside sandwiches or hamburgers. —June Mullins, Livonia, Missouri

"A light potato flavor. Good seasonings. Slightly dry, but will make again."

"I made these potatoes as a side for some rosemary chicken. They turned out wonderful and little did I know, but I made a food my husband loved during a trip to Germany. Bonus points."

"12/24/208 - I had high expectations for this recipe but it turned out very dry and I'm not sure why. Maybe the egg whites? The flavor was good though so I may try the recipe again."
