"These potatoes were good, but I had to cook them for a lot longer than 5-6 took eight hours before they were tender enough to eat. I'll make them again, but it seems like something else needs to be added to them - maybe a little butter and water, as they were pretty sticky and fairly dry by the time we ate them. Maybe par-boiling the potatoes before cooking them would help. They did stick to the slow cooker, even though I sprayed it with cooking spray before adding all the ingredients. The flavor was very good though, and basically I think it's a good recipe."

"They were HORRIBLE tasting. I dont know what I am upset more. The fact I wasted all those ingredients or that it will take me 3 days to scrub my crockpot"

"The first time I made this I made a double batch for a food day at work thinking I could use the left overs to go with dinner. There wasn't any leftovers from my 12 coworkers."
