I agree with the above comments, I added the onions 10 mins into the cooking time but they were still overcooked & not caramalised, just really crispy. But loved the addition of garlic at the end. Probably won't make again.

These were good, but I wouldn't add the onion until last 20 minutes or so as they were a bit overdone. Otherwise, tasty.

I agree with alot of the other comments onions not need to go in till 10 mins into cooking time. But all the same was very scrumy even for my preggy fiance who is only nibbling at stuff i cook her but she ate all of this. A******

I make this often, but add chopped smoked bacon and lots of black pepper, goes well with cauliflower cheese. I always add other ingredients about 10 mins after the potatoes, if you add bacon it will take longer, Also works well with new potatoes.

Agree with others - the onion needn't go in until after first 10 minutes. Also works really well if you combine with sweet potatoes.

Delicious! As I am a Yank, I used Yukon Gold for these and added half a pound of fresh broccoli florets at Step yummy my husband and I ate most of it from the baking sheet before it ever reached our plates.

Grow own potatoes and onions So able to have++ However like Previous comment would not put onions in until last ten minutes....were rather over done...lost the caramelised effect!!

Not bad at all, I already add red onions to my roast pots but I cut them a little thicker and they are lovely and sweet...
