    Divaconviva's Note:

    I remember my mother making finnan haddie, and I always loved the smoky, creamy taste and texture of this dish. And now I like that it’s quick and easy to make. I especially like boiled potatoes and sweet green peas with it.

      My husband loves creaed finnan haddock and this is almost identical to my recipe. The only way he likes it served is over toast - but that is because it is the way he ate it as a child

      Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 -Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! Wow, this brings back some memories! As a child this was a favourite & my dad would cook this once a week for us.... we always referred to it as Finny Haddock. It was lovely seeing my kids enjoy something I did when I was their age! Thanks for a delicious recipe & a trip down memory lane :)
