- Spread reserved potato mixture evenly over surface. Bake at 400 F (200 C) for 20 minutes or until topping is light golden.
I love worcestershire sauce, but the tablespoon called for in this recipe is far too much. The flavour overpowered the dish. Other than that, my husband and I both liked this, although my teenage son was not thrilled. I substituted 2 cups of "winter mix" for the frozen mixed veg (it's a combination of frozen broccoli and cauliflower my grocery store sells, essentially California Mix without the carrots) and suspect that 2 cups of any frozen veg would be fine. This was also quite easy to prepare, and made for a quick dinner.
I quite liked this recipe!! I cut up the potatoes into smaller pieces before I boiled them and I left the potato peels on, which made for a super smashed potato topping! I will keep this one! Loved the cheesy taste!
I love this recipe and my husband and son usually do not eat any vegetables and they really liked this recipe. I was pleasantly surprised.
