  • “I liked these quite a a bit and would definitely make them again with a few tweeks.I will add more paprika and garlic next time.The flavors were overwhelmed by the potato, which while good, I was hoping for more than just fried potato.I did add extra green onion.Like Bayhill, I used my cast iron to cook and lengthened the cooking time. Thanks!”

  • “Delicious!Instead of adding just 2 green onion stalks, I added a bunch of them because my gosh they’re amazing.I also made this in a wok because it’s all we had and used a bit more oil than what was called for, b/c everything wasn’t getting quite coated enough.ALSO, the potatoes needed a few more minutes of cooking as another reviewer suggested.They were cooked, just not nice and softly.I also used 1 tsp. of dried parsley instead of 1 Tbsp. of fresh parsley.I also used two potatos instead of three and added about a cup of chopped red onion in with the potatos at the start.Then I used an extra clove of garlic…so I guess I changed the recipe quite a bit, but it was still great!Next time I would cook the potatos longer and/or cut them into smaller pieces.The taste is pretty close to hash browns, only it feels much healthier going down!And because I had garlic, red onions, and green onions, there were three onion-family items in the mix.Despite this, the dish is mostly potatoey-tasting, the onions are just a subtle backdrop.Awesome, nice going Jo Mama!”

  • “These are fast to make and quite good. This is Pol Martin’s recipe from his cookbook, Easy Cooking for Today. He recommends serving these with his recipe #309907, #309907.”

  • “Delicious!! We loved these quick and easy potatoes. I cooked these covered for about 12 mins, then uncovered them, added the remaining ingredients and cooked for an additional 5 mins. Also, I cooked these in my cast iron skillet which gave them a nice crust. Next time, I might add more garlic to intensify the flavor. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.”
