Most recipes, I modify. I wouldn't change a thing with this one. Great flavor and texture and we love it.

Tasted great, but too much of the milk-flour mixture for 3 lbs of potatoes. Probably about right for 5 lbs. in which case the cheese should probably increase to 6 and 3 oz.

I made this for dinner tonight to compliment a couple of ribeyes. All I can say is fantastic.
