My husband loved these. I used extra thick applewood-smoked bacon and a mixture of cheddar and colby-jack cheese. I forgot to cook the onions before putting the potatoes in the pan, so I threw them in together, and they turned out fine. And I didn't use the sour cream either.

Made for Recipe Group. These were just ok. Definitely needed salt and pepper. Salt from the bacon is not enough. I did use russet potatoes(almost always use russets for frying and roasting) and some were cooked through and some not quite after cooking almost 30 minutes. Cut potatoes about 1/4", maybe that wasn't thin enough. Anything is good with cheese and bacon! Sour cream adds a nice touch. I usually like my potatoes crispy when frying instead of steaming them like this.

These were pretty good. I served them as a side for dinner, but I think they would have been better as a brunch dish. After reading the other reviews I was worried they were going to be too plain, so I added garlic powder, salt and pepper while they were cooking. Didn't serve them with sour cream, I didn't think it was necessary.

I loved this! Made as is, but I did mix in some paprika in the sour cream and spooned it on top, but although the sour cream wasn't necessary, it was a nice touch. I will definitely be making this again!

I reduced the recipe to 4 servings but followed it in every other way. We liked it quite well but thought it would have been better if the potatoes had been crisped up after cooking. We also thought the sour cream on top was just too much (I did serve it on the side.) I didn't think it needed any salt but I did add pepper at the table. Thanks for sharing.

Recipe Group******This is pretty good but it needs salt added to the potatoes while they are cooking. Other than that its tasty and would make a great snack for during a game or movie night. I did use russet potatoes(its what I had on hand), extra cheese and topped with sour cream and sliced green onions.

This was enjoyable, but not unforgettable. It definitely needed salt and pepper and more cheese.
