I watch a British soap called Coronation Street & they always order Hot Pots & make them sound so good. Well if this is what they're eating then it is good! I don't want to think of it yet but this would be really nice on a cold Canadian winter's night. Will make again then. Served with fresh carrots as suggested. True comfort food. Thanks!
5 stars + another 5 stars!!!! wonderul gravy, fantastic smells while cooking an absolute winner with adults and children alike! I am so confident that we will all like MarieAlices food that I doubled the recipe and the only change I made was to sub the celery for carrots as my kids don't like celery. I served it with fresh baked baguettes to mop up all that lovely gravy. The next day we heated up the two small portions that were left and they tasted fantastic too! I'm going to make another batch in the week and freeze it in single portions for mid week when we are all out and about. Thank you Marie
