    Great recipe.Quick and easy but great taste. My family loved it. Even my teenagers.  -  04 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was wonderful, my husband told me it was a keeper. I made a few modifications though, I kept the peels on the potatoes, I added cubes of ham and instead of salting it I added two chicken bouillon cubes. I will make this again and again!  -  14 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great recipe! This is the recipe that I have been making for years. I do add a little garlic powder.  -  16 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
