Toooo funny...I have no idea where you got the idea it would serve 6!! lol Fed two...Soooo good. Actually glad the family wasn't over. more for me
My mother used to make these when I was a child, and it was nice to make up a batch of them for my own kids. This is a really good recipe, a bit fiddly (the grating is the worst bit - I did it by hand grater), but well worth the end result. We had ours with dipping sauces - delicious! Thank you for sharing a tasty recipe James!
I have to give this a 5 star! So tasty! A little bit of work but well worth it. I must say I did add a little more salt and pepper at the end. YuMM!! Thanks for a great recipe James ; )
