I hated this. It had an odd taste from the herbs and bacon. I was trying to serve something with a fresher taste but this was a flop.

I made this as well, and it's really good. I increased the orange juice to a half cup. Don't worry about thinking there is not enough liquid, the potatoes cook down and there is quite a bit of liquid when it's finished. And, it cooks down to about half the size of where you started it. I could have easily doubled this recipe for a family dinner. Everyone will want seconds. One more thing, after frying the bacon, I drained the fat except for a teaspoon or so, added 2 tbls butter, breadcrumbs and fresh chopped sage. Browned it up, scraped the bacon from the pan till the breadcrumbs were toasty. Let it cool and added 6 strips of bacon that was crumbled in my food processor. This last part is so good and a great addition to the sweetness of the potatoes.
