  1. Made this the other night… Was a big hit in my house… I used cream of chicken soup instead of pumpkin… Delish!!

  2. I used this as inspiration for a potato bake tonight. I used potato & sweet potato. Covered with 2 chopped rashes of bacon, pepper & chives. Then I made a bechamel sauce (with lactose free milk & cheese) which I poured over. Cooked for about 5 hours on high (Russell Hobbs 3.5l which cooks slow). Sprinkled with LF cheese for last 30min without the lid & it was delicious! Thanks for the inspiration.
