    Sounds yummy. How many people does that serve? Do you eat it as a side or a main? Cheers from Kay

      We eat it as a main dish. It is 12 servings worth and very filling. I have six children plus my husband and I and it feeds us all.
      It is also a good dish for Christmas morning because you can make it the night before and just pop in the oven during the hustle and bustle. This is how we started eating it but then love it so much we now have it throughout the year. We have it for breakfast but dinner too.
