This sounds like a good way to get veggies into kids---or adults who don't like them. It's very sneaky, also good for St Paddy's day. 6 servings. :biggrin-new:

Big deal; you can get kids (and dads) to eat anything that has enough cheese on it. There's no trick to that. :biggrin-new:

That sounds delicious! Next to a steak of course.

You could even use boiled cauliflower in place of the potatoes for even more veggie goodness. This forum is making me hungry.
