Talk about easy and delicious! This made a great "comfort food" meal with very little effort or mess. This was just enough for myself and two hungry men. I will double it if have more at my table. The finished product looks beautiful too. This would make great lunch box leftovers I think. I gave it 4 stars (which is still good in my book) because there is a little confusion in the directions. Down where it says to Brush with beaten milk, I assumed it meant egg since the ingredients call for a beaten egg but does not mention where to use it. I had to do an internet search to make the temperature conversions (not a problem - Dee-licious! is down under - I'm in Alaska) For any other Westerners wanting to make this yummy dish, 200 degrees = 400 farenheit or Gas mark 6 for Euro. 180 degrees = 350 farenheith or Gas mark 4.

I live in the South West Wine Region of Western Australia. I am a full time mum with two little boys, so this website is great for new ideas to get them to eat vegies!(Or just hide them!!!) I love trying out new recipes, all my friends comment on the "new, gourmet" dishes that I make. They love coming over for dinner, little do they know that I always pick easy dishes to make, just from a different country. I like to think of myself as a bit of a culnary queen! Meaning I'm not afraid of trying new recipes that look so exquisite!!!
