MY REVIEW

A go-to in my home. Lots of sauce, but I too add an addition potato and it is perfect!

MY REVIEW

Very good flavor but a bit heavy on the onion flavor. In following the recipe exactly, I found there was too much sauce, which can easily be remedied by adding a couple more potatoes to soak up more of the sauce. Next time I may add a minced clove of garlic as someone else suggested to see how that tastes as well as cut back a bit on the onion. Otherwise a very good side dish that was fairly easy to make.

Very tasty dish. I added a 4.5 ounce can of mild green chiles to the recipe and it added just the right amount of zip for my families tastes. I also used a combination of red and Yukon gold potatoes, kept the peels on just scrubbed them well and sliced. With the addition of the peels and the chiles it amped up the flavors and the visual appeal as well.

Very tasty,,but next time I will double the sauce to make it creamier. I also added 1/8 tsp. of Thyme to give it extra flavor.
