“Here is a very simple, very inexpensive meal that goes a long way. My grandmother would make this when I was a child and it was one of my favourite comfort foods. Today it is just one of the budget meals that taste great and smells wonderful while cooking. The potatoes may brown slightly on the bottom of the pan but the carmelization of the starch in the potato only enhances the flavour!”
