  • Reviews

  • “This was really good.I used russet potatoes and chives instead of scallions.It was very good but, I think would be better with red potatoes.I will definitely make it again – it was so easy!”

  • “Wow, this was great.We enjoyed this dish a lot.Easy to prepare, great texture and flavor.Made as directed except I added a pinch of red chile powder.I think the slight tangy flavor of the buttermilk was a great addition.Thanks for sharing this keeper.”

  • “I was unsure about the buttermilk, but have to say this is an excellent potato dish.Easy to make and I LOVE the crispy bottom.Will definitely be making this again.”

  • “This is pretty good – easy, quick to prepare and tasty. However I couldn’t get the potato to stick together. Maybe it was because I used russet potatoes instead red. It makes great ‘hash browns’ though.”

  • “Wow! I don’t think that I’d change one thing about this recipe. I made it as part of lunch. It was delicious, easy and everyone gobbled it up! I didn’t change a thing.Very good!”

  • “This recipe is part of the Adopted Recipe Swap #1. Dreamgoddess is right… this recipe is a 5 star all the way.I have the perfect pan for this dish…has those rounded sides.I not only slid it out of the pan, but put it back in and browned the top side also.It was wonderful.DH even made several comments on how good this was.I did add a little garlic powder to it also.”

  • “5 stars all the way Shirl!The recipe was almost too easy to make and the taste was delicious.I wasn’t able to slide this out onto a plate as the instructions said because I didn’t quite crisp the potatoes as well as I should.It didn’t matter though as I just put them in a bowl and we ate them up!I’m so glad I chose this in the adopted recipe swap!It was perfect with Julesong’s adopted recipe Scampi-Style Chicken Thighs recipe 8384.”
