  1. This was so yummy!! I browned the potatoes in the oven longer because I wanted them to be crispy. It was a perfect gluten free meal for us. I also used seasoned salt instead of regular salt.

  2. Made it ! yummy ...we used to have this at when I saw your recipe I just knew that I had to make it . There was enough for another meal this's even nicer second time round re-heated up ! mmmmm thanks for the memories ! :) x
