"I like making these to serve as a side with a grilled steak. When slicing these make sure you don't go down to far as the potato will slip when inserting the onion pieces. Also make sure your onion slices are nice and thin."

Making different potato dishes is always fun and these were delicious. I baked them until they were nice and crispy on the outside. They tasted so wonderful with the pork tenderloin I made. We all loved them and my girls suggested we have these again so I added them to our menu plan.

My friend and I just loved these potatoes. They tasted so good with my pork chops. I didn't use the sour cream this time, but will the next time I make them. I cooked them at 350 for 1 hour as I was baking something else in the oven and had to have it at a lower heat. I will make these often as an option to baked or mashed. They look great too, if you are serving guests... Very attractive! Thanks for sharing Bea! Linda

I made this a couple of nights ago. We loved the onion, butter, chive flavour combo and the appearance is very attractive, too.
