    I live in Sweden and this recipie is exactly like the one I use to make Jansson's Delight,, it is wonderful! The only difference is that I add the anchovies (packed in water from a tin) in layers, rather than at the bottom. I prefer your method better than mine.  -  11 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Truly Excellent!!! One of the best potato dishes we've ever eaten. I used red onion for added depth and since I made it for two I had to adjust the amounts a bit (different than if you use the provided scaling calculator). 2 medium potatoes sliced 1/4", 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream, 2 Oz Butter and 1/4 bread crumbs (I'll increase the butter/bread crumbs next time, they really added to the dish) and I'd also bake 5 minutes longer (50 Minutes). This is top notch.  -  30 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My gosh these are GOOD! I'm not a big anchovy fan, but you don't really taste the anchovies. They do, however, add a fabulous flavor. I used "regular" anchovies, half and half instead of heavy cream, and increased the topping a bit. We just LOVED these! Just a delicious potato dish!  -  07 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
