      We both really enjoyed this recipe as part of our Irish leg of our Voyage around the British Isles. Very traditional and very tasty. Excellent recipe and very authentic!

      Very tasty dish! We used almond milk instead of regular milk and it came out just great! We also added Earth Balance buttery spread before serving, but not very much (and we didn't melt it). Thanks for posting!
