  1. I've made this recipe twice now for different company, and both times it was enjoyed by all. This one is a keeper. Thankyou FlemishMinx for posting.
  2. Pretty good. I'm a true potato LOVER and I think it's missing something...with 'bulk'. (Like cheese?) Although that wouldn't help the "low-cal health factor". I guess I just expected a more HEARTY potato dish after reading the recipe. I also thought the bread crumbs seemed out of place in this recipe. Maybe if I just used less of them next time. (?) I may try it again with some adjustments.
  3. This came out really nice and was very tasty. I had to cook it an additional 10 minutes because it wasn't very hot and bubbly after 20 minutes. For the mustard, I used recipe #70193. We eat alot of potatoes at our house, so I'm always looking for different ways of cooking them. Thanks!
  4. An easy and tasty potato dish! Thanks, FlemishMinx--your other recipes sound good too.
  5. I made this dish for the family was easy, fast and very yummy...thanks for sharing this.


I am an American married to a Belgian, and have lived in Belgium since December 1999. Cooking is my major hobby. I'm also an avid reader, but I have difficulty finding the time. I love to travel. Since moving to Europe I've been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to go a couple of times per year to Paris, as well as having visited London, Rome, Florence, Naples, Amsterdam, and of course Brussels and Antwerp. I've seen at least parts of most regions of France, as well as parts of Germany, Austria, a great deal of Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Luxembourg, and Monaco. I'm absolutely in love with the Bay of Naples and Sorrento coast areas of Italy, which my husband and I recently re-visited on a trip that included Rome, Puglia, Umbria and Marche. I'm still looking forward to Ireland, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic . . . the list is too long ! One of the bonuses of travel is getting to taste the local cuisine, and afterward trying to figure out how to duplicate it at home. I think cooking is one of the nicest things a person can do for someone they love (including themself!) I had to submit a picture with me and my cat, Sophie, as she insists on sitting in my lap when I'm sitting at the computer. If you are wondering what all that stuff hanging on the wall behind us in the photo is, it is just a small part of my husband's military medal collection. He was appalled by my posting this picture-- Our study is the messiest room in our house (thank god!)
