I really enjoyed this, the change I made was microwaving the beets and potatoes to save some time. I don't have a steamer. I let the beets and potatoes steam for a while in the pan with the other ingredients before serving to soften them up.

My kids love this recipe! I substituted Sweet potatos for the russet and it is really good
