I made half a recipe and it was great. I had to use white onion for the leek but the rest as written. DH really liked this recipe as he ate almost the whole recipe.

Excellent! I only wish I had a rashers to make this properly- had to use streaky bacon, as that's all we have where I live in the US. Otherwise, fantastic!

A new family favorite!!! DH doesn't like green beans so I doubled the spinach. WE INHALED this. Absolute comfort food. Made for the Aussie Swap.
