When I was growing up, my mother told me I would starve my family because I didn’t like to cook. Thankfully, I enjoy it now! This flavorful side dish goes nicely with meat loaf.

"I would give this 5 stars but it took much longer to cook than stated. I needed another 20 minutes at least. Either raise your oven temperature or resign yourself to a longer cook time."

"We like this just as written for a change of pace potato side dish. A great alternative to the Swiss cheese is a Sharp Cheddar."

"A bit bland. I will try it again, but may try to zip it up a bit. Certainly easy to make!"

"I had high hopes for this dish, but it was the blandest least flavorful potato dish I have ever tried. It was very disappointing."

"Very good, Very easy. I made it for Easter. This is one of those recipes that is good as it is and could be used as breakfast/brunch or dinner. I plan to use this dish as a base for other meals, such as changing the swiss cheese for cheddar and adding green chili's or change the cheese to pepperjack and serve with brats."

"This was a very easy recipe to make. I had to substitute diced hash browns, otherwise I had no problems. It was very tasty, my family and I enjoyed it very much, I just had to add 20 minutes to the cooking time.

I will definitely make this again!"
