This had great taste but an hour was not enough to cook the potatoes through. Mine were still chewy after an hour and 10 minutes! I also substituted regular bacon for the pancetta. Read More

These were a success everyone loved them. For those who have not tried the recipe yet follow the amounts listed. I was improvising a little and the result was too much spinach but that was my own fault. Read More

Pretty delicious and simple to make. I did not have heavy cream and simply substituted milk and melted butter whisked together. It worked out well. I served it as a side dish, but it would definitely work as either a lunch or dinner. Read More

This was tasty. When I was pouring the cream on it seemed like it would be too much but once it baked and set it turned out fine. I used soy bacon to make this vegetarian--if anyone else is going this route cook the soy bacon separately first to get it nice and crispy then add it to the onion. This will majorly improve the texture of the finished product. Read More

These potatoes are fantastic! Made them for the holidays and people couldn't get enough. So nice to have another potato casserole option at dinner time. Thanks for sharing Erin Read More

Packed with flavor! I think this recipe is perfect as is and I wouldn't change a thing. It's very rich but I think it could be lightened up if you wanted to cut a few calories. I would saute the pancetta drain it and clean the pan. Then saute the onions separately. Go for a part-skim cheese and half & half instead of cream. But I think I'll just keep it as is! Read More
