Excellent potatoes; I was reluctant to try the recipe after the other review, but the potatoes turned out great. I did use a cast iron skillet and topped the potatoes with 2 T. of butter (distributed evenly over the top) before baking. They were very good.

I was planning to make these potatoes for Christmas dinner so I tried them last night to make sure they would be worthy of a special occasion. I followed the recipe to the letter and they just were not very good - bland, tasteless and only the potatoes on the very top were crispy. All of the seasoning was on the very top - if I made them again, which I am not planning to do, I would distribute the seasoning throughout. I am interested to hear from others who have made them.

I had to work with this recipe quite a bit after seeing the early reviews at one star. I added in finely chopped onion, and spread all the seasonings throughout the dish. I also added a bit of bacon drippings in with the oil for flavor as well. It was okay.

Agree with earlier reviewer. I made these as a dry run for Christmas dinner and was so glad I did. They were very bland, with no zing whatsoever. I followed the recipe to the letter, and I was very disappointed. Would not recommend.
