This was a great dish and the whole family liked it. It came together easily and seemed like it was ready in no time. I followed the directions except that I made my own potatoes. I also baked them covered at 350 for 20 minutes then baked them, uncovered, at 425 (the temperature that I needed to cook my fish) for 12 minutes. I wish I would have read the reviews or thought to use sauteed onions instead of onion flakes. I will definitely try that next time. And there will DEFINITELY be a next time! (Served with Busy Day Baked Fish and green beans)
These are good! I will add more carmelized onions next time because we love them. Thanks for sharing!
These were so incredibly good! Did what previous reviewers did, and sauteed onions in butter and added the last 10 minutes of baking. Made these for dinner last night and having them for lunch today. No more Mrs. T's for me! Thanks for posting. :)
