Quick, easy, tasty. I used BBQ chips. I will try sour cream and onion and baking next time.

I'll certainly bake these in the oven when time permits - like at weekends - but for a really quick mid-week meal, these were just SO easy to make. I scaled the recipe down for two, and used only about 1/2 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce (personal taste preference). Having used unflavoured potato chips (the flavours always taste very synthetic to me), I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and added some garlic powder, some paprika and several grindings of black pepper. And because there was plenty of room in the pan, I sauteed some sliced onion and sliced mushrooms in the last 10 minutes of cooking. We greatly enjoyed this dish: thanks for sharing it.
