Simply a great dish, we loved the flavors, and went well with some beef ribs, and cream of potato soup. I liked the unique way this recipe went, and the kids really enjoyed this too. Made for Holiday Tag.
I was extremely tired when I went to make this and misread the instructions and mashed all the potatoes (which took about 8 minutes to cook in the microwave) and of course when I got to step 8 I knew I had stuffed up but went ahead and made the sauce without some mashed potatoes in it, layered half the mashed potatoes in a small corningware dish as I had scaled back for 2 serves which adequately served 3 of us with the DM and I having a 1/4 each and the DS the rest) and then put half the sauce on top and then topped with the rest of the mash (which was stiff chunky mash) and then the rest of the sauce and then the panka crumbs though a lot more than specified and cooked as per instructions and was a very enjoyable potatoe side, thank you Lori Mama, made for I Recommend tag game and recommend by pammyowl.
Very good, nice and creamy. I browned some pork cutlets and put them between the layers of potatoes, they were perfectly cooked. I did forget to add the Parmesan, so after the first 30 minutes of covered cooking I mixed it with the panko crumbs and sprinkled it over the dish for the last 30 mn. baking time.. Thanks for posting!
