so bland. My mom fed us this as kids 55 years. I did not like it might have been the snoke flavour so for olde times sake I thought I should give it a my wife could live on...

This is the best recipe for Finnan haddie ever...better than my Mother's and we're Scottish! Will make over and over.

Delicious. I added grated cheese to the sauce to add a little extra flaour

Plan to try it tonight. Adding a bay leaf, some finely diced onion, grind of nutmeg and parsley.
