    I'm a student, thought I'd give this a try. Made away with the home-made sauce, but added mixed veg (see photo). Boiled sliced potatoes, fried bacon strips, hard-boiled eggs, light fried an onion. Then put all of it in a baking dish with mixed veg, salt and pepper, topped with cheese. 20-30mins, 180°C (fan assisted oven). Lovely! Next time I'd add cheese sauce or gravy, and maybe some broccoli and cauliflower.  -  15 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This recipe tastes great, the only problem was there wasn't enough to feed 4 people, I had to double the quantities.  -  06 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    My family can be quite a fussy lot, but I found I hadn't made enough of this dish as all of us came back for seconds. Had to swap onion for shallots.Very simple, but absolutely delicious. Which only leaves me to say thank you to the author of this recipe  -  04 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
