    I'mPat's Note:

    From Australian Super Food Ideas. A very tasty potato dish. Have included cooking time for boiling potatoes and making sauce and oven time. I think you could make this ahead and keep in the refrigerator but would have to take out for at least 30 minutes before cooking and would cook at a slightly lower temperature for longer to ensure it heats all the way through. NOTE 28 May'10 - Tasty cheese = cheddar, usually a young one; my personal preference is a sharp or aged vintage one depending what I have on hand but all will work well but just give a different depth of flavour. Also a sprinkle of paprika on top (or mixed with breadcrumbs does not go wrong - not unusual for me to do on a cheesy topped dish).

      What a treat Pat. We really enjoyed the potatoes prepared this way. The mustard, garlic, onion and thyme give a nice flavor to the potatoes. It was quick and easy to make, the potatoes were tender and delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe which I will make again.

      This turns out good even if you are multitasking and screw up - I was potato-light, and endedup with too much sauce for the potatoes - if you could really have too much of this delicious sauce. I followed a suggestion of a reviewer, and cubed my potatoes first, then zapped in the microwave to the proper doneness. Used a combo of fresh and dried thyme, as the thyme has partially died back. Used a white cheddar instead of tasty cheese, which I believe is a velveeta-type of cheese, in any event, not sold in the US. I halved the recipe and cooked this in a 2 cup ramekin, and it was perfect. Well, the crumbs did not quite brown enough, as the excess sauce was bubbling up, but not the recipe's fault. A lovely side.

      Very nice potato dish. Coarse grain mustard gives it nice kick. I didn't have fresh thyme so I used just a pinch of dry thyme and used low fat milk. I baked it in casserole dish for 30 minutes. Served with grilled chicken breast. This would be nice with pasta as well. Thank you for recipe will make it again!
