"Bland! Are you kidding? This is a true Irish meal handed down from generations. This is all they had in there day to work with and I'm sure if your hungry enough you would eat it and love it. Maybe this food is not right for you. They didn't have canned chicken broth back in the day in IRELAND..."

"Instead of water why not use either canned chicken or beef broth. Add some garlic salt, onion salt, and sprinkle with poultry and celery seasonings. This would make an extra tasty dish."

"These were really bland; we had to add milk and more butter to make them taste like anything."
