    I think this is a good bacis recipe that can be customized to individual taste. I will make again, but will try adding some bell peppers or maybe crumbled bacon and cheese for additional flavor. Good starting point though for a simple casserole.

    We just didn't care for these potatoes at all. The red pepper flavor was great, but they were so greasy with all that butter. We did like them fried up as homefries for breakfast the next morning.

    My family really liked these potatoes, they had a good zippy flavor with the added crushed red pepper flakes. They want the potatoes made often.
