Reviews for Poor Man's Dinner
"This is likely to become a regular recipe at our house. I sliced the potatoes thin with my mandolin and they cooked up perfectly in the allotted recipe time. I would add a little oregano or thyme for some extra flavor but overall - simple and delicious."
"Please note this takes much longer to bake. I re-covered the dish and put it back in the oven for 30 additional minutes. That's a total of 1 hour and 45 minutes = 1-3/4 hours (both the cookbook and the online recipe tell us to only cook for 1-1/4 hours). I sprinkled cheedar cheese on top."
"Love this recipe! I add carrots and also add a pack of dry brown gravy mix or dry beefy onion soup mix for a little extra flavor."
"it takes much longer time to bake, I actually had to set the oven to 400F for the last 30min to have the potatoes tender. Also the flavor was plain and my family just don't like it, and I would not make it again, sorry.it takes much longer time to bake, I actually had to set the oven to 400F for the last 30min to have the potatoes tender.
