"Did not enjoy. The oil and parsley do not work too well, maybe chives would be better, had to add some sour cream and cheese for some flavor and to get rid of the somewhat bitter taste."

"this is one of the best potatoe recipes i have found. they are extremely easy and quick to make and have good flavor. i would not necessarily recommend this recipe to someone who does not care for somewhat bland flavors vs bold flavors. my dad smoked for yrs and his taste buds are gone and he said they were dry and needed more flavor; however, my boyfriend and i love them and i make them almost once a week. they are one of my bf favorite side dishes and mine as well."
