If like me you cannot stomach onions simply peel them and put them in whole. This gives the flavour without the texture
Very good! I just made half a recipe for the two of us. I had 4 slices of smoked gouda cheese I laid across the mashed potatoes to top it off. So it looks a little strange, the cheese didn't melt it kind of roasted and was delicious! the only thing is the mashed potatos under them didn't brown, anyway all in all the whole thing was delicious! Also used becel soft marg instead of butter. Tasty supper thanks DIB's, I will be making it again.
