"WOW, boy this was EZ to put together, taste was yummy too. I'll take this to my next "bring-a-dish" meeting."

"I didn't have processed cheese, so I used what I had on hand - 8oz. shredded mozzarella and 8 oz shredded parmesan. Family doesn't care for olives, so I omitted them. It was a hit!"

"a variation of this recipe has been in my family for years. Mine calls for Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise, and strips of bacon are laid across the top with olives in between the strips. I have always left out the olives because we don't care for them. This is a GREAT go-to recipe that really dresses up a meal."

"Just made these. We loved them and I have picky eaters. The only thing I did different was no olives and I sprinkled ranch dressing mix over the top."

"I have made this Potato recipe for years but I use green olives. This is my meet and greet dish. My family likes this with ham. I do cube my potatoes then cook them to just tender the night before so they are cold. Then mix with the onion,cheese and MO so it looks like potato salad. Then follow with bacon and olives"
