  1. it looks yummy. I made this regulary but I do not use flour. I just put a cream, salt and pepper and then back it for an hour. Once the potatoes cook, I sprinkle the cheese and leave it to melt for 15 minutes.

  2. I’ve contacted the blogging police and you are posting food porn at this point – ha! I had to wipe the drool off my chin from staring at the photo of the potatoes. Those are one of my all time favorite dishes but I do not allow myself to make it or have it in the house as I could not stop myself from devouring it! Looks like a great recipe. I will make it if I am going to a very large party and I am sure I will not have too much to bring home to add to my waistline 🙂
