    My 13 month old daughter and I really enjoyed this recipe. My husband did not like it stating it tasted too much like onions (he hates onions). I halved the recipe as I was only cooking for three. Also a food processor is a must. It only took me 10 minutes to prepare this. I did everything in the processor, shredding cheese and potatoes and chopping the onion. Also I only cooked for 60 minutes and the casserole was crisp and done. I had to cover with foil the last 15 minutes and it still burned a little on the sides. I will start with the foil if I make it again. This may be due to the larger pan I used (9x11.5). If you add more cheese I think these would taste just like the potatoes at Cracker Barrel. I also added about a teaspoon of dried mustard for extra flavor. I probably won't make again for home, but may take to a pot luck as I really liked them.  -  27 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good! I used two large pans and baked them at 350 for an hour then 400 degrees for 10 min. Great taste, will make it again for sure.  -  23 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This potato loaf is wonderful for breakfast. Just slice off the number of pieces you need and fry or broil. YUM! I did cut the olive oil in half because it seemed a little greasy the first time I made this. Also, for more flavor I added garlic powder and a touch more salt. Thanks Mindy.  -  23 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
