Very good! I did double the onion as suggested by others. Next time I'll also cut the milk by about 1/2 c. to make it thicker. We thought it was a little too runny.
This recipe was pretty good, but I made some changes. I used steamable frozen peas so they could easily just be cooked in the microwave. I only made half the recipe (becuase it's just my husband & I) but I increased the onions. Also, I felt the cream sauce was a little bland...I added more salt, thyme & sage. When it was all done the dish was flavorful, creamy & sweet from the peas. Will definitely make again.
Made half recipe only my husband and I but kept the onion amount the same. Used whole milk only. Very good.
It was o.k. but too rich for my taste. It was too much trouble to make for it not to be any better than it was.
This recipe was AMAZING!!!! I didn't have red potatoes on hand, but used Russets and the recipe was still Yummy. Even better the next day!!! A couple of small changes, didn't saute onions, but added green onion/scallion and added a tblspn or so of sugar.
