This is a regular at our house. Everyone loves it. I use ready-made crusts and Swiss instead of Jarlsberg otherwise I follow the recipe as written. Hubby likes the leftovers for breakfast the next morning! Thanks. Read More

Very very good Eleanor. Due to lack of time I had to cheat with this recipe. I used Pillsbury pie crusts and frozen hash browns. I used fat free half and half which I doubled asiago cheese and more seasonings. Family loved it! Read More

Pretty good dish! I did use ready made pie crust and subbed swiss cheese for the Jarlsberg. I think it's best to let this dish set for about 15 minutes after coming out of the oven for the flavors to meld together (it seemed to me to taste better toward the end of the meal) Read More

The filling is yummy but I must say I did not use the recipe's pie crust because I love emeril's savory pie crust recipe.And in doing so the pie just had that WOW factor in my mouth. Read More

My whole family loved this pie. The only thing I would change is to add more cream. For some reason this was abit dry. But I will continue to make this. Read More

If I had realized this was a double crust pie I wouldn't have bothered with it. Since I'd already picked up the ingredients I made it but only with the bottom crust. The pie was very tasty but between the pie crusts the fried potatoes ham and cheese this probably has a weeks worth of fat in a single serving! The pie disappeared quickly but I won't make again.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! For the crust I used 2/3 cup of butter instead of shortening increased the garlic by two additional cloves and used extra sharp cheddar cheese in stead of Jarlsberg. This crust is great to use for sweet as well as savory pies! Read More

4.5 stars here. I did use a pre-made crust swiss & cheddar cheeses & leftover deli ham. I mixed the ham & onion mixture w/the potatoes & just layered that w/the cheeses. It all came together very well. I let it sit for about 20 min before cutting. Sliced beautifully! Taste was very good & it wasn't dry in the least! Read More
