I added slightly less butter and left them in the oven for an hour. They needed a little time to "set-up", so I left them on the counter for about 15 minutes before serving. They were really good with our corned beef on St. Patrick's Day!

For us these were not tasty enough to justify the calories - they need finely diced or sliced onion for sure - maybe a paprika seasoning between the layers. As is these were nothing special to write home about. Thanks for sharing - they have potential but need a bit of tweaking to bring them up to their potential.



These really are old irish, my great grandmother used this recipe. As you say, what ever you have on hand! She made these for any big meal with the family, if she had extra cheese, extra ham scraps, a bit of bacon, it went in! Green onions in spring too! Every time she made them, they were different, but this is the basic idea of this recipe! If she didn't have cream, she made a basic white sauce with milk and butter and used that, but usually she made them when she had extra cream from the farm!
