  1. This is so yummy! I didn't have bacon or goat cheese so I substituted canadian bacon slices and mozzarella. Even so the flavors are wonderful. I can't wait to make this again.
  2. Who knew cheese perference was such a controversial issue especially in a dish that's basically peasant food. (The best kind in IMHO.) Since there are varieties of goat cheese that range from mild to pungent and from fresh to aged the recipe as written leaves a lot a wiggle room. Like saying use a half - Read more ...
  3. I found this recipe and was intrigued. I decided to make this with ingredients I had on hand: Idaho rather than purple potatoes Feta rather than Goat Cheese and Green Onion rather than leaks. I felt these were minor modifications and am pleased to report that this lived up to its is indeed FABULOUS. - Read more ...
  4. Despite the review that RotorTrash left (and yes my taste buds are perfectly refined so thank you for that) I used cheddar. The chance that a family of five on a budget will have goat cheese is slim to none. It was very very good and my kids loved it. RotorTrash I hope to someday - Read more ...

  7. I made the recipe exactly as written. Loved it!! Got mad reviews from my finicky friends. I really loved the flavor of the goat cheese. Would never think of using anything else.
  8. I also substituted cheddar for the goat cheese and I found the flavor to be a little bland although I think a little salt might have done the trick. This was an easy recipe and I will try it again adding some salt and possibly more milk.
  9. This is a great recipe! I substitued cheddar for the goat cheese and it still turned out wonderful. I will make this one over and over again! Made this again 10/14/2005 with the correct ingredients and I think I prefer the cheddar I used last time over the goat cheese. I bet blue cheese would - Read more ...
  10. This potatoe dish was DELICIOUS!! A few minor comments - 1) This is not a difficult recipe but it does take a little preparation time. 2) I used regular Idaho potatoes and it worked fine. 3) This dish may be alittle rich for some people's taste so just decrease the cheese and bacon or increase - Read more ...
