Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Good if you like mild flavors sort of bland to me. If you want something a little more flavorful you need to add garlic or creole seasoning to season it a bit better and definitely use the sharp cheddar or even pepper jack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacks Flavor - Don't Make Unless You Adapt It I made these last night and I was so disappointed. First, let's get this straight - these are more like biscuits with a few potatoes in them, not a 'potato side dish.' The worst part was that these severely lacked flavor. There is no salt or pepper in the recipe, and while sometimes processed foods like cheese add enough saltiness, it just didn't cut it in this. In fact, although you add a whole package of cheese, be prepared to be shocked by how little you can taste the cheese itself (and I used sharp cheddar) and you can't really taste the sour cream either. The only 'redeeming' flavor factor was the peppers and onions in the O'Brien potatoes, but there actually aren't many of those in the package (the recipe image makes it seem like there are more than there really are.) I don't ever plan on making these again - I didn't like the texture - but if you think you will like the texture then you really MUST do something to up the flavor on these. Add a generous portion of salt and pepper. Consider other seasoning add-ins like garlic powder and/or onion powder. You may also consider adding extra onion and peppers...more cheese...or even adding green onion and bacon then serving with a side of sour cream for a 'loaded potato puff' option (my neighbor had that last idea). I almost never take the time to leave reviews on recipes (even though I make a lot) but I felt compelled to share my experience and tips on this one so no one else has the horrible experience I did last night.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from uck!! These were really terrible. No taste, I had high hopes that these would be good, so I used my family as guinea pigs, they hated them also. Don't waste your hard earned money on these ingredients.
