    Very easy to prepare and the results were good! I used my crinkle cutter for a little more decoration. I will make them again and add some fresh rosemary from my garden too.  -  04 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Good recipe to use any seasonings you have on hand. I keep disposable foil pans of all sizes, sprayed the pan with nonstick spray, then sliced the potatoes and onion into it. Covered with foil and used indirect heat while our chicken cooked. Opened the foil one time to stir and check, and the results were tasty potatoes with seasonings. The disposable pan was nicer to serve from and I did not have the mess of opening foil packages. Thanks for the recipe!  -  04 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were very good. I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on before serving, but they didn't even need that really. I also used dried basil and they turned out fine. It's a keeper - love the garlic!  -  19 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
