Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Can substitute vegetable bouillon cubes for chicken bouillon cubes.

    I'd simplify this by not frying up your own red onions and buying those, but frying isn't my forte. There are several other components that need fried. The potatoes are quite filling and I think it generally tastes better the next day.
