    Husband loves potatoes and green beans so I knew it'd be a hit with him. I liked that it was a one pan meal and was very easy to put together. I like on of the other reviews felt it was needing something. I sprinkled a little dill weed for color to garnish and wonder if a tsp or so in the dish would help. I will make again for sure. Thanks for an easy, tasty filling dish. Would have given 5 stars if just had a little more of something.

    Easy to follow recipe. My boyfriend liked it and it is very filling, but I thought it seemed to be missing something. I followed the recipe exactly but the finished dish was very bland. It didn't need any more salt; it was on the verge of being too salty as it was. I ended up helping this recipe along by doubling the amount of cheese, adding fresh minced garlic and some sour cream, which helped it quite a bit. Not a recipe that I would make again.

    Other than changing to fresh green beans, I made this recipe exactly as stated. We all enjoyed it very much and the one pan clean up is a bonus.

    Good dish! I made this dish for dinner last night and wanted to comment that you may need to add some salt and pepper to the dish for more intense flavors. Also, I didn't have a skillet large enough for the whole dish to fit and so I used a dutch oven instead. (I did use a skillet to brown the bratwurst first.) We also used some of the leftover cheese to sprinkle on top of the dish once it was in our bowls.
