      Glad you enjoyed the potatoes Janice, I knwo it’s hard when you visit a blog that is run in another country, All the ingredients I use can be purchased in Canada or U.S and that is where most of my traffic that visits my blog is from, it would be like if I visited a food blog run by someone in NZ, I would find it difficult to get their products ๐Ÿ™ Hope there are enough recipes for you to enjoy still ๐Ÿ™‚

      1/6th of the dish, I did not weigh it out, I just divided into 6 equal servings, as long as you keep them similar size all should be good with points

      It’s a 9 inch dish as mentioned in post ๐Ÿ™‚ If I just say 8 inch or 9 inch then you know it’s a 9×9, I will say in recipe if it’s a 9×13..

    Can’t wait to try this dish! Do you think a yogurt dressing (such as Bolthouse) would be an OK substitute for the ranch dressing, or would a yogurt-based product not work for this? Thanks!
