The name sounds very weird..But believe me i really wanted to try this recipe out as it had potatoes and cheese sauce which sounds irresistably delicious..i did make it as a starter when my friends came over and they just filled their stomachs with it...the potatoes sauted in butter give it a very different flavour..
