These made a lovely surprise for our dinner served along with sausages, peas, and caramelised red onions. I would certainly serve these to guests. I do feel they need a gravy or sauce with them though as I found them a little dry but that could have been because of the potatoes I used. I plan to have them again soon with a mushroom sauce like Baby Kato. I made half the recipe and made into 3 Ramekins. They came out beautifully. Thanks for such a great dish fit for company.

Awesome NurseJaney, simply awesome. We really enjoyed these tasty potatoes. What a lovely flavor and great texture. The onions are a lovely surprise. I did serve the timbales with English Farmhouse Mushrooms. What a lovely pairing. Thanks so much for sharing this treasure which is going into my keeper box. Made for Aussie swap #40. :)
I served these with Prime Rib yesterday, and they were very good when paired with the au jus. I found them to be a bit bland, and even though my muffin tins were sprayed generously, they did not come out of the pan as well as I thought they would. I think they would be fabulous served similar to yorkshire pudding with a roast...(sitting in the au jus around a roast).
I scaled back for 6 and filled 6 muffin holes plus a small ramiken, I did omit the onion for allergy reasons otherwise made as per the recipe but like a previous reviewer found them a little dry and the DH commented that he would have preferred some cheddar cheese to go into the mix to give flavour, otherwise they were enjoyed and would make again but try half ricotta and half cheddar and add some spring onion as the DH doesn't have a problem with that though he does regular onion. Thank you NurseJaney, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #74 March 2013.
