I made these last night and enjoyed-though had to make some adjustments. I had adjusted the servings from 6, down to 2, so I had to adjust the baking time somewhat. Besides having less potatoes in the dish, baking time is also somewhat dependent on how they are cut. The recipe says to "thinly slice" the potatoes, but neither photo showed thinly sliced potatoes. I cut mine into ½ in. cubes. Rather than the 45 minutes, I checked them after 30 minutes and the potatoes were well cooked, but because they had been sealed under the foil, they were simmering in liquid that had cooked out. I uncovered them, turned the oven to "Lo-broil" and placed the rack one notch lower than the top, and it took them another 20-25 minutes (stirring every 3 or 4 minutes) to dry up the liquid and crisp up. After cubing them, I put them in a bowl and tossed with garlic salt, then spread in the pan, put the onions and (pre-cooked and cut up) bacon over as instructed, but I melted the butter in a little dish and drizzled over rather than trying to "dot" the butter. Some mentioned them being too greasy. Mine were not in the least bit greasy. Of course I did use precooked bacon which has less fat. I also used Smart Balance margarine, but they were very tasty. I'll definitely make these again.
