I always make these to go along with my glazed ham,it has become quite a favourite. I have passed this recipe(along with my glaze recipe) to both my mother & my sister who both now make them as well. I got it from one of those Kraft What's Cooking magazines quite a few years ago.

This dish was easy to assemble and the end product tasted great. I sliced my potatoes quite thin so they were almost cooked after boiling so I only baked them for about 30mins in the oven. After the first 20mins I topped the dish with about 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese. The BF thought it was really good and says there is never such a thing as too much cheese!

I was looking for something to make that would use the potatoes and carrots in my fridge and found this recipe. It was easy to make and I loved it. I am already making it again. I didn't use the cayenne and added a little more cheese. It was so good, and I didn't find it bland at all. Thank you!

These were pretty good. Slightly on the bland side but good. Will make again.
