Review This Recipe
Could be better
Fixed this for Christmas dinner. The "plan" said this could be reheated, which was true. And other reviews said to slice the potatos thinly so they cook with the apples. The flavor of this was ok but next time I would par boil the potatos, (they cook much slower than the apples) and double the sauce. (the top of the dish gets too dry). I don't think the wheat germ adds very much.
