  1. I made this as a side dish to a beef casarole. It needs HEAPS of seasoning, and maybe less onion - my kids don't like onion...hubby loved it. Easy to make.
  2. I took Angela's advice, added my own seasonings (paprika and freshly ground black pepper) and it came out great. This is going to become major comfort food in our house. You could go the other way, forget about the onions and add some nutmeg, and it will still be good!
  3. I agree with both the others that this dish needed heaps of seasoning, but I made it for work (a home style restaurant) today, and it was quick, tasty and just the sort of thing we like to cook. We have cream on tap, so next time I would use half cream, half milk. I multiplied the recipe by 3 and it worked well, so it would be good for big gatherings.
  4. Very yummy! I followed the recommendation of putting cheese in the middle, though used a lighter cheese there and egg whites to lighten the recipe up a little. I stirred in some paprika, as suggested, and some sausage, and then it made four hearty entree portions. Steam a side of veggies and you're set! Kid and family friendly--and cheap! Oh yeah, and if you have a cuisinart/food processor, it's a snap--throw the grating tool on, and you can grate the cheese, the onion, and the potatoes in just a few seconds.
  5. I made this and really liked it! It wasn't too eggy either. Nice potato and cheese flavor-leftovers reaheated well also.
