    Easy to make but quite bland in flavour  -  19 Feb 2015


    Really lovely recipe. I halved the ingredients because there are only two of us, except for the onion and substituted the bouillon cube for a chicken stock cube, added a garlic clove to the onion and omitted the cream and egg. I also substituted the cheddar with a cheddar and parmesan cheese instead. Very tasty and filling too. Very nice for a midweek meal.  -  29 Jun 2016
