I have never tried something like this and for the tasters it was a2mixed bag, for 3 it was wow 5 stars, for another okay 2 stars 3 if mashed potatoe had also accompanied it and 4 for another who thought it was a bit sweet for their taste. Will try again with some tweeking to suit family tastes. Only made 3/4 of recipe and was more than enough for 4 (could have stretched to 5 - going to make bubble and squeak out of left overs). Thank you Evie, made to Recipe Swap #2.
