Love this, I used a large orange kumara & 5 med potatoes. Put a layer or kumara, then potatoes, sprinkled 1/2 the onion & a clove of chopped garlic, sprinkled with a wee bit of chicken stock & repeated the layers. Didn't have fresh herbs so sprinkled with dried and baked 180 for 1 hr. Not a bland layer to be seen. Can't wait to eat the leftovers. Yum. Will definately made again, great when you are having people over for dinner.

loved it, really easy to make and very tasty. I used chicken stock because I was out of vegetable and it was yummy. I added onion through the layers as well as on the top. I probably used extra cheese too to ensure a thick covering on top.

Idea was great. Top layer tasted yummy with all the ingreds in it. Bottom, a bit bland and boring. Perhaps adding salt and pepper to the middle and bottom layer may make those layers more flavourful? I think maybe I would like a 1/4 cup more cheese as well. Anyway, felt good to eat yams (that was the sub we used). I will try one more time w/ S&P and see if that makes it for us. Thanks for your recipe!
