  • Reviews

  • “My DH is Finn and I thought I would make something from his homeland..We were disappointed in this dish. Did not care for the flavor or the texture..”

  • “Very ice thanks Amanda. This has an interesting texture almost like a souffle when it first comes out of the oven. It needs to be well seasoned, some pepper would be a good addition, and next time I would sprinkle some cheese over.”

  • “Great in ramekin dishes for individual servings. I added cheese before the breadcrumbs for a crispier topping. I can’t imagine having plain old mashed potato very often after discovering this recipe! “

  • “Very tasty recipe!(Oven temp of 200 C works at about 375-400 F oven… 375= 40 minutes, 400= closer to 30 minutes.) “

  • “This is delicious.I added a few more potatoes and a little grated cheddar on top before I baked it.5 star for sure.Thanks!”
