    This was very yummy, the whole family loved it. The second time I made it though, I decided to be like MrsNorico and change it a bit. First, I threw away the sausages and replaced them with fish fingers, then, instead of making a batter, I decided to mix up half a packet of Angel Delight, added some chopped walnuts and a bag of spanners, and cooked it in the freezer. I think my version was nicer actually but none of my kids would even try it which is why kids these days never get their 5 a day.  -  20 Jun 2013


    Used different ingredients. First I halved the amount from 4 to 2 servings. Then I used spicy sausages and they worked perfectly. My husband loved this dish. Also I added chopped scallions for colour and some tinned mushrooms to increase the volume. Then baked in a little ramekins. Good for two-person household.  -  24 Sep 2009


    Would add some herbs next time, I think.  -  16 Jul 2012
