It’s SPRING! WOOO HOOO!!! Winter can now officially go into hibernation …. Yes I was being polite! 😉 I love Spring & Summer catching up with friends at BBQ’s or down by the beach. Most of the time I am delegated the dessert but I am changing things up this Spring. I am bringing this beauty! This thermomix potato, egg and sour cream bake is absolutely delicious!! And I might sneak a dessert or two in as well… well I can’t let my reputation down! 🙂
This is so simple and really a perfect accompaniment to your own at home BBQ’s too – means you get to sit out on the deck/verandah/patio instead of being in the kitchen. I have to admit that I may have just made this one night and forgot about having anything else! It was just nice in a bowl. Albeit the next day I added some shredded chicken.
