I made these potatoes for the Hub's birthday dinner. We all enjoyed them, but did find them kind of bland. Both potatoes and pumpkin need something to spice them up. The vinegar onions are good and the bacon a nice touch, but it's hard to get all the flavors in one bite. And once you've eaten all the goodies off the top, you're left with mashed potatoes mixed with pumpkin and a little salt, pepper and butter. If I made these again, I think I would try to incorporate everything into the potato/pumpkin part, spice it up and return it to the potato shell.
