I royally screwed this thing up! I feel like I can't really give an accurate review of this casserole because I messed it up so badly :(
I really went wrong with the potatoes. Like I did for the previous casserole I made this week, I used fresh potatoes instead of frozen and I made this ahead of time. Two things went wrong with this. First, the freshly cut potatoes oxidized in the refrigerator and turned a purple-gray color. For someone who definitely eats with her eyes, this is no good. Second, the fresh potatoes require a longer cooking time so they are not crunchy, this took an additional 40 minutes.
I didn't add the meat the recipe calls for either (shhh don't tell my husband there was supposed to be ground beef)...I am not a vegetarian, but overall, I can do without most meats, especially ground beef.
So, there you have it. The overall taste wasn't bad, I just couldn't get over the gray potatoes. I'm a little bit weird anyway, so I am sure that contributed. I will not be making this again. I feel like even if it was done the right way, I might not be a fan.
There's always tomorrow!
