Lovely recipe! DH isn't a fan of celery but I use often it mixed in with other things so that he doesn't mind it too much. Today I had some that needed using up so chose this recipe. His verdict was: it "wasn't so bad really" cooked this way and could we have this every now and again. I agree totally. I used homemade chicken stock and fresh thyme, great flavour with the bacon! Sadly when I grabbed the sour cream out the fridge I realised it was a week out of date, so dumped it and used a little milk instead, maybe the mixutre would have been thicker,? but I don't think that really matters becuase the flavour was there. This cooks up easily, except that the potatoes also took longer than 10 minutes for me too and the sauce started to stick a little so I ended up removing the bigger bits of potato from the pan and cutting them smaller so that they could cook before everything stuck fast. DO make your potato pieces very small. I only had a little fresh parsley, next time will add more becuase we liked that too. Excellent easy weekday recipe when you need a homecooked meal but want a little less hassle in the kitchen. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars :) Thanks!
