Thanks for posting this great recipe. To make it even easier I put the potatoes into a plastic bag & then added the other ingredients and mixed them together. Keeps hands clean :) I then put them into the dish. What I liked was that I could prepare them earlier in the afternoon, meaning more time for relaxing with friends :) Had them with grilled sausages to which I added a can of savoury diced tomatoes after they were cooked and then just heated them through, with a green salad on the side. My friends enjoyed this easy Sunday evening meal.

Very, very yummy. Best potatoes I've ever had. I also tried this with eggplant it and came out great. Much easier than dipping in egg and frying.
