This is a different dish alltogether, but DIFFERENT IN A GOOD WAY! It tastes sweet and salty at the same time and the milk goes so well with the potatoes. All the flavours of things you eat regularly blend together and make for a very new, satisfying taste experience. I baked my pudding for 45 minutes and it hadnt set up then, so that it was more saucy than youd expect from a pudding, but I didnt mind that at all. It was just YUMMY! Oh and I used only 2ts of salt, which was plenty. Thanks so much for sharing this super duper recipe with us, Syd! Its definitely a keeper! Made and reviewed for the Edn8 Make my Recipe June 09.
