I used frozen potatoes because it just makes life easier around here. They don’t have to be frozen in order to cook them, though.

I don't see the onion seasoning in the list of ingredients. How much do you use. Sounds like a nice addition.

Hi Glenda! Thanks for pointing that out. I updated it to show 1 tsp. of minced onion. I buy it dried in the seasoning aisle. It really adds great flavor to the dish. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!
