‘Recipe guide frankly, it was a throw together and very basic,’ she said.
The recipe called for ground beef, garlic, vegetables, and potato gems.
And it only took 20 minutes in the oven to cook – with the mother using the crispness of the potato gems as a guide.
And the recipe had hundreds of obsessed parents.
‘Oh, I love this meal, thanks for sharing,’ said one woman,
“This is also a huge hit in my house,” said another mother on the same wavelength.
“What a brilliant idea,” added another.
Others raved about the opportunity to try something new at home.
“Oh, the addition of potato gems could mean my kids are really eating something different,” said one mom.

The home cook said she was going to make mashed potatoes for the dish, but “couldn’t ignore it.”
She’s previously posted photos of her kids’ dinner online – once she served up potato gems and nuggets with a side of corn and zucchini.
Mommy tip of the day, it’s okay if your kids eat nuggets and chips every now and then. Just put some semi-healthy things aside. They will love it, ”she said.
How can I make this cake for my kids?
A dash of oyster sauce
Peas and corn
2x Maggie sachets with roasted meat gravy
Salt and pepper
Cook your ground beef, garlic and onion, toss in the other spices and sauces.
Boil a kettle. Add the gravy bags, hot water and gravy bags. Then the peas and corn.
Carrot also fits well here, freshly cut into small pieces or simply frozen.
Put the gravy mix in the bowl, cover with potato gems.
Cook for about 20 minutes until crispy. And add some salt on the top.
Then cover with cheese and return it to the oven until the cheese looks good.
