I absolutely love making this dish not sure anyone has noticed if you follow us on social media haha, its so quick to chuck together, it is usually a meal I will do on a Friday evening as for us Fridays are the last day of the week until we do our weekly shop in the evening and we have often ran out of everything in the fridge so rely on cupboard staples.
You can add any veg you like if you want to bulk it out some more, mushrooms and peppers are a great veg to add but you can literally add anything you like. You can also swap the potatoes for butternut squash.
I use tinned potatoes in this recipe but I also use leftover cooked potatoes as well.
Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…
- A big time saver for chopping veg with a veg chopper, from onions to carrots this is a god send to chop quickly.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- Cheese grater with varying grater sizes.
- A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
- Skillet pans, not only are they great for frying but they can also go in the oven.
